Hi guys
Road number 175, June 13, 1944, out of Villers Bocage, Normandy in the early morning ...
In a few minutes, this place will become a living hell for those men who will find themselves trapped in one of the boldest action conducted by the panzer ace Michael Wittmann will launch its Tiger tank from the top of this road will tumble on English columns

Lovely diorama! As mentioned, the civilians make a fantastic impact to the scene! :)

Nice choice for the photo location too - the real trees 'blurring' into the model make it look even better! :cheers:

I´ve just googled "June 13, 1944, Villers Bocage" and seeing the original photos (post attack) it makes your dio (and your Research) even more impressive.

Bon travail! :notworthy: :notworthy:

Another absolute Masterpiece. You always achieve such an animated scene that I find myself wondering "What are the four men in the Bren Carrier discussing?" and "What is the driver of the towing carrier saying?". Brilliant work as we have come to expect. :notworthy: :notworthy: :notworthy:

Remy, that is absolutely brilliant! I thought it must be 1/35, but checked your title and was amazed to find it is 1/72! :shock: I just couldn't believe those figures were 1/72! Deep respect! :notworthy: :notworthy: :notworthy: :notworthy: :notworthy: :notworthy:
