I'm not aware of any Pz. IV H's with skirts having been deployed into Tunisia, let alone the North Africa "desert", did that happen?

Sources list the model H just beginning production in April 1943.

Maybe it's supposed to be the Italian campaign?

He got some very constructive criticism on the website, which is very valid and correct.

The crew look wrong for even the final days in Tunis, let alone the skirts. The crosses on the turret? Surely only for captured and turned AFVs and the odd King Tiger? The national flag, no black surround to the white disc. OK for Wehrmacht flag but that was much more complex (funny place to stick it too).

But it is a really good effort and his next will be better still. I do hope that everyone will post their worst efforts on here and learn from others (I surely have)

Learn here from some of the better to best in the "business". so to speak. [Think the muzzle break is not in the correct position. Those towing cables should be rusty. No silver gas cans.]
