September 1939 - May 1945. Dioramas Militares e Vinhetas de Guerra na Escala 1/35, sobre a História Militar do Teatro de Operações Europeu durante a Segunda Guerra Mundial.
Setembro 1939 - Maio 1945.
During the early phase of the DAK's Desert Campaign, the 606th FLAK Abteilung was part of the 5th Light Division. The Kfz10 with Flak38 were small halftracks vehicles, which in the conditions of the desert war proved to be of great value, thanks to their mobility and firepower. This kit is from Italeri on 1/35 Scale and Flak 38 is from Tamiya and was painted with Tamiya and Modelmaster acrylics. The figure is Alpine.
With the help of a pair of binoculars, a member of Flak's garrison scans the desert vastness, looking for enemy moves. The Kfz 10/4 has a 20mm cannon, model FLAK 38, which was widely used, not only for air defense, but was also used to land targets. In the Desert Campaign, a FLAK Battalion usually consisted of two heavy batteries, each with 4 FLAKs 88mm and a lightweight battery, with 20mm and 37mm cannons.
This US Army trailer is a tank-type drinking water supply with a 250-gallon tank capacity (about 950 liters). The kit is from Italeri, scale 1/35. For the model to look more interesting, I added the red cross decals (BisonDecals) and the hose that comes in the kit, was replaced by a tap, from the Tamiya jerrycans set.
These American trailers will do just fine to complement the scene of a diorama. But we have to put a very varied load of accessories, such as ration boxes, backpacks ... to get a more attractive look. The Italeri kit is easy to assemble and has been painted with Modelmaster acrylics and finished as usual ....
One of the most characteristic symbols of the initial fighting phase in Normandy was a variety of bizarre armored vehicles, based on French vehicles captured at the Battle of France in 1940.
These vehicles were a conception of the very creative mind of Alfred Becker, an artillery officer who served in the German artillery in France in 1940.
Because of industrial contacts from his family, Becker managed to gather many captured vehicles and shipped them for transport to Germany, where at the Alkett factory in Berlin-Spandau many of them were rebuilt as self-propelled artillery. Becker's innovations improved the mobility of artillery used primarily in the 21st Panzer Division.
