GumSmith Figures part 2

Posted by GumSmith on 30 Nov 2020, 18:23

Hi everyone,
now some 15 years old figures, another set i made just for fun and some friends.
3 of the figs were build after a well known and often published picture war photo from the battle of the bulge, or german Ope ration"Wacht am Rhein", the second Ardennes offensive.
The little scene shows some SS-Panzergrenadiere running trough the ruins at fierce streetfightings against british paratroopers at the Arnhem road bridge.

Only Preiser make that possible.

The pic eleven, I thought first it is a picture on the wall.

Nice running scene.
the damaged furniture look realistic.

But I can't make the link with the Battle of the Bulge and Arhnem? I'm a bit confused. :eh:

The poses were inspired by a photo of Battle of the Bulge soldiers.

Gumsmith has used those poses to create a dio about Arnhem.

Hi Peter,
have no better words:

I built the 3 running soldiers in the back after a Battle of the Bulge picture and used it for this little diorama which is inspired by some Arnhem pics.

Hi Arminace,
you can`t know them up to now, because this Diorama must be round about 15 years old and i didn`t show it on Bennos or Behind Omaha up to now.
Thanks for replies and comments.
