Description: This diorama depicts a scene in the following months after D-day. In a French town, German units are moving to the front. Here a Sd.kfz.251/1 Ausf.D with infantry and a Tiger tank from a Wehrmacht unit are on thier way. A Wehrmacht platoon also trudges by. From behind a roadblock an officer watches with a schwimwagen,which served to set up road signs. The models were built out of the box. The tiger and Sd.251 are Dragon and the shwimwagon and kettenkrad are Hasegawa. All were painted using Humbrol enamels. The figuers are Preiser. The tree, park fence and house are self made. The house is a copy of the Verlinden kit flipped. It was made by cutting and carving balsa foam. HO railroad windows, shutters and doors finished it off. The cobbel-stone street is printed relief carton from Faller.
