If Japanese box art is to your taste, read about one of the great masters Shigeo KOIKE
Fans of Hasegawa aircraft kits will be familiar with his work.


Shigeo Koike in his studio.

Realising how small his paintings actually are make them even more remarkable I think...

*****
Panzer: Pzkfw IV, Ausf H
A typical mid-war (summer of 1943 is my guess) Panzer IV, complete with zimmerit anti-magnetic coating and schürtzen armour.Some of the panzermen assembled are wearing the green denim fatigue uniform over their black panzer uniform, suggesting the panzer was undergoing maintenance work or being prepared for an upcoming assault.
