Bulson, May 14th 1940

This is my first attempt on dioramas, already from 2004.
The scene shows a PzKfw III F of platoon leader (1st vehicle) of 3rd platoon, 2nd Comp,  II./PzRgt. 2, together with supporting infantry taking the small french village Bulson during the opening day's of german western campain. A Hotchkiss H35 has been suprised and got immediately killed. Hits of light artillery and mortar have caused some destructions around.
The situation along the street isn't clear. Infantry is yelling commands to each other and taking cover, meanwhile a PzKpfw III F provides fire protection.

The PzKpfw III F comes from Zvesda and was already introduced here. The Hotchkiss H35 comes from Heller and was built OOTB - except for the metal tracks, which came from Friul. The Hotchkiss got painted with the typical colours of french mechanized forces of that time.
The figures came mainly from Verlinden and Warriors, as well as fromTamiya. In comparison to the figures of Verlinden for example Tamiya figures are different in quality and size. I have used only some of them and tried to place them in the background of action. The street lamps came from Plus Modell, everything else on this diorama was built by scratch.
