I added one additional detail to my diorama to sell the cold and winter setting. I used an old, old technique of soaking tissue paper in PVA glue. I cut a small rectangle of tissue, soaked it in diluted PVA glue, and then took tweezers and carefully draped over the crewman's back.

The nice thing about this technique is that the tissue dries rock solid and adheres itself to whatever you put it on.

I'm going to paint is a medium brown to match the brown of the rolled packs on the back of the tank.

I think it's a nice additional touch to add to the frigid setting.

I am loving ideas like this, makes it realistic.

Great idea. It draped very realistically, too.
