Looks really interesting to me. The result looks great so far.
Do you have any tips for me, as I'm planning to build this kit to in the future?

That is a great build!! Tamiya have really stepped up their game with figures. Years ago I wouldn't use Tamiya figures in a build but these day they have become a acceptable standard which is great 😀

Remove seam noticeable in barrel.I made a few mistakes like that which my 52 year old eyes did not see until I took pics.

You've done a fantastic job for an out of the box build.
I have several new and older classic Tamiya kits in the stash that I should just build as they are.
I )and other people) tend to get too wrapped up in other kits and adding photo etch or other updates. This usually leads me to shelving the kit as the build drags on.
One of my favourite builds to date was the classic old Tamiya Panther kit;
Old: Yes
Mistakes: Yes
Errors in size and shape: yes
Easy to put together and practice weathering and minor updates: Yes
Quick to build: Yes
Fun to build: Heck ya!
keep up the great work

Excellent camouflage on vehicle. What did you use for wash/rain marks? The camouflage pattern for the army winter "parka" and pants is notoriously difficult to paint.

Why do the crew members wear helmets and no caps or berets? Like the normal tank crew members of the panzers for example wore?

Because the Nashorn is a direct fire anti-tank vehicle which, unlike a tank is open with no top cover so is therefore vulnerable to shrapnel and air bursts.

Thanks.The wash and filter is thinned Naples yellow oil paint.I did same thinned even more over the figures came to get the slight splinter effect.
