What a relief! After all, each day I find these funny little screws about the house in the carpeting. :O I thought I lost the last one when you told me there was an Opel Blitz in those photos. 8O But there must be just enough left to keep my brain from falling out entirely. :D

The bridge is a masterpiece, too. It looks perfectly European to me, actually quite beautiful, except the Germans added sandbags to they could shoot at kayaks going down the river, right?

Hello sirs

these lasts weeks at home i've been doing lots os mini-dios with the US figures, so we can put them quickly on the Panzodorm, and change location if needed

warning, lots of pics!

With so many figures, it was almost impossible not to break anything, so, how use several broken german and US guns? and then i resorted to this, i hope no one gets offended

The intention is to pay a small tribute to all those young people who, regardless of their uniform, lost their lives. Enemies in life by someone else decision, together once buried. The earth makes no distinctions or cares who they were before.

I love the idea of "mini dioramas". It remind me tabletop war games like Bolt Action or Flames of War :)

yep, that's is the idea, all figures and positions must be quick to place, only that our tabletop is some 600 sq meters and at ground level :haha:

Jussek,

Fabulous work (and lots, and lots of time) as always! Love all of it! :thumbup: :clap: The buried combatant's is also a nice touch. It reminds us all that not all of this was fun and games! :(

Cheers,
Eric.

What a fine idea to bury Germans side-by-side with Americans, creating a surprising little memorial. I was quickly reminded of my 1971 visit to the remains of the bridge at Remagen, long, long before it was built as a peace memorial.

A very apt & well executed subject Mr Jussek.
On the various travels(oh yeah-travel-remember that thing :/ ) we always made the same effort to visit grave sites of all combatants, regardless of nationality, in each area.
