I'm going on a well-earned break tonight and won't be back on line until Tuesday next. So to keep you going this is the first of two posts today. First up, as the title suggests, is something that took me some time to complete. I'm quite proud of it even though it did drive me to despair on more than one occasion. I think the relentless grey was partly to blame. It reminded me of where pebble-dash goes to die. No matter, tis done!
As you can see from the shots it's a big beast. Huge in fact but that is to be expected from this 'army' in miniature. It was designed to be able to fight, drive and eat for three days without re-supply and on the whole it did this. That the Germans' acts of extreme folly during The Battle of France were crowned with laurels is immaterial at this distance of time. But just imagine what a more resolute and determined Allied command could have done to Guderian's panzer corps........
