Steffen Christmann shares with us some images of his diorama dedicated to a break through by US troops southwards from peninsula Cotentin August 1944 - Operation Cobra. The ground troops were supported by one the greatest air armadas of WWII, that bombed their way free. The StuG III / G is a Dragon "black knight" kit with Friul tracks, Tank burned-out wheels, ABER photo-etched parts, Verlinden engine and Atak zimmerit. This vehicle belonged to 341.StuG.Abtg.and was produced 02/03.1944 by Alkett, still wearing the mid-production skrits. The cover over the gun port is scratch built and was typical for Stug’s from 341 and some other units. The M4A1 Sherman is a Tasca kit with Friul tracks and Blackdog baggage. It belonged to 2nd armored Division. Figures are Dragon and Warriors; These camouflage-suits were only worn in that period of the War in Europe. Ruins are scratch-built from Styrofoam; Some accessories are from Plusmodel."
