The Race To The Channel; 1/35 scale diorama of the 7th Pz. Division in Northern France, 1940

The 7th Pz. Division was commanded by General Erwin Rommel during the Battle of France. Most of his division consisted of Pz. 38(t) Light Tanks and some Pz III ausf E tanks. In this diorama lead elements of the 7th Pz. Division (Pz. III ausf E)are going thru a town in Northern France in an effort to encircle the BEF and French forces retreating from Belgium. The diorama buildings and tank crew are from MiniArt, The BMW and Zundapp MC's and crew and the Pz. Grenadiers are from Tamiya and the Pz. III is from Dragon.

Looks great.  The buildings are awesome.  I would think if I were on the Zundapp (?) I would want to be behind the panzer!  Figures look fantastic.

Great diorama. Good painting on the figures and vehicles and I love the buildings. Well done.

I really love the action your figures portray!

In the pattern: Lindberg's 1/48 Snark and Scale Shipyard's 1/48 Balao Class Sub! Started my Prince of Wales for the Ships of the British Flag GB...oh and I bought another P-38F/G to use the other nose art Exito Decal (in-flight for this one), & in keeping with MC's hydra theory I bought another F-5E to do in FROG camo!
