1/35 Tamiya "Fall of France" vignette

Posted by gerry7944 on 17 Feb 2017, 11:46

This is a 1/35 vignette using Tamiya figures and gun with the fountain being Italeri.

The base is an old picture frame and the rubble is my own mix from my rubble box.


Cheers

Gerry

I love to see all those Tamiya figures! Had a few, maybe still do, but it is much better to watch your work than dig up mine unpainted figures! Very nice to see.

Wonderful skill and presentation as usual! I really enjoy looking at your pieces given all the little details to be seen. In this seen I love the lone Adrian helmet laying there in front of the fountain! One can only assume its owner had to leave in a hurry!!!!

That diorama looks great.

LOL I don't think this German gun would open a tin never mind a Char.

Not boring us at all Gerry. You will find that the little boys in this forum have a bottomless appetite for quality dios and painted figs. We gather around the campfire waiting to hear the next exciting story!

Even if it's surprising: at an angle of 90° and a distance less then 500m, it certainly would. At least, as seen here, at the sides or the back of the Char.

My understanding was that these little guns proved so inadequate particularly against the Chars and Matildas that the legend of the 88mm was born as they had to press them into service as an AT gun instead of their intended role as Flack guns.

I think the Germans had a few dicey moments and suffered quite as few casualties because of this.

I could be wrong though.

Yes I know - that little gun was nicknamed 'tank knocking device' (Panzeranklopfgerät) by the Wehrmacht soldiers and was by 1940 mainly used as a light infantry support gun. A role in which it - especially in urban combat - wasn't that bad at all.

The point in your joke was that the Char has been hit by the side. There, a straight hit on short distance would be a possible winner. Upfront, where armor is thickest, the gun wouldn't stand a chance against the heavy plated tanks, that's right. But it's logical - that gun was developed against lightly armored tanks and tankettes.
