4th Armored Division - Germany - March 1945




Elements of the 4th Armored Division, 25th Cavalry Reconnaissance Squadron arrive in a town square somewhere in Germany.


Resistance has been light.


The usual suspects confer over maps while others take the opportunity to have a cigarette.

They'll be on the road again in 30 minutes to the next town, and then the next town, and so on and so forth until the war is over.

That background scenery really adds to the foreground diorama and provides great depth. Awesome, thanks for sharing. Steve

Re: 4th Armored Division - Germany - March 1945

Really nice display. The buildings and background are so nicely done that they are best shown off in colour, that way you can really see the work that went into them.

Re: 4th Armored Division - Germany - March 1945

Thanks for the compliments, guys! We appreciate it!

The Dutchman - I'll ask Cory to see if he remembers where the street lamps are from and let you know.

Thanks again for the kind words!

Fred

Re: 4th Armored Division - Germany - March 1945

Thanks, Bob! We really appreciate it!

The Dutchman - Cory said that Bobby Dalto (our friend who built the dio) acquired the street lamps somewhere and he doesn't know the source of them.

Thanks again for the compliments, guys!

We're glad you enjoyed the photos!
