Who?

 

You've probably seen her.

She was 92 and by all accounts lived a happy life after George Mendosa, a stranger to her, grabbed her and kissed her in Times Square on V-J Day at the end of the Second World War.

      Today marks the 76th Anniversary of what has been dubbed "The Longest Day", when the push to liberate Europe from NAZI Oppression and predation set foot on the beaches of Normandy, France.
      Please keep all the brave men [and the corp of Nurses who didn't have to but volunteered anyway] who sacrificed so much for all of us in that and the subsequent days and months.

      Yes! We can do it again! Let's make a tank! Let's make a beautiful tank!
       
      Once again, it's a diorama project based on a game scene, once again, it's Combat Mission.
       
      In this particular diorama, the commander of a Panzer III M is a reallylucky  person. In a shootout during the Let's Play of German wargaming channel "TaktikfuchsTV", his Panzer III got hit around 20-25 times, prompting everyone to believe that this particular tank was dead. And I mean ... DEAD!
       
      But to everyone's surprise, the crew reentered the vehicle and drove away - going like:
       

       
       
      Here's the scene:
       
      Kauder reenters his tank (In German)
       
      So I got me a commanders figure and a tank ...
       
      First off, some pictures to see what this project will look like:
       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       
      So I got me a Panzer III from Tamiya and started to do some minor conversions ... and over the course of one afternoon, this vehicle was finished.
       

       

       
      I am really proud of those selfmade smoke launchers.
       

       

       
      The vehicle will be displayed with open hatches. That's a challenge due to the really lame interior, but that's not a problem. I'll use colors to make the less detailed parts dark and the detailed parts white - I hope that will work!
       
      Tomorrow I'll go over the armor and do the shell damages. The only thing I am not certain about is the frontal armor provided by the spare tracks.
      I don't know how those look when they are hit. They are pretty massive and I simply cannot imagine them looking the same way as a normal armor plate when hit.
       
      I've got to dig deeper into it.
