Pegasus Hobbies US Rangers D-Day, June 6th 1944, No.7351
Zvezda German MG-34 Machine gun with crew, winter, 1941-1945, No.6210

The link below is a Picture of Heinrich Severloh who was a whermact Corporal who served with the 352nd Infantry regiment during WW2. During the Normandy Invasion Severloh was stationed at Widerstandsnest-62 (resistance nest-62) where he manned an MG-42 machine gun from a tobruc machine gun nest, a small concrete bunker with a mounted machine gun, with another larger concrete bunker connected to it underground for amunnition storage. On June 6th 1944 Severloh claims to have wounded over 2000 US soldiers with his MG-42 and 2 karabiner 98K rifles, while a sergeant whom he didnt know supplied with ammuntion. later He withdrew from fear of being caputured by the US, but surrendered the next day. He is portrayed in this diorama, by the German soldier in the machine gun bunker,and the unknown sergeant is the one with the binoculars the bunker was scratch made from styrene sheet, one minor error is that in the diorama he is portrayed with an MG-34 machine gun and not an MG-42, however Zvezda do not make a set with an MG-42.
