German Looted T-34

I had a spare PSC T-34 left over from when I had assembled my old Finnish T-34 platoon, so I decided to turn it into a German Beutepanzer for my recently completed Grenadier Co.

Captured in the thick of fighting by the Mid-war period, many of the Soviet Beutepanzers were kept only in fighting condition through desperation and salvage work, being abandoned after the continued abuse finally made them non-operational. To this end, I used a variety of painting and weathering techniques to give the tank a heavily beaten appearance (salt chipping, filter washes, oil weathering, dry pigments, and finally plaster/pigment "mud").
