good to see a WW II French tank in it's original camo pattern for a change! Thanks!

Outstanding work! Exceptional figure positioning/interaction, scratchbuildig, etc. … And I really like that b/w photo treatment.

Cheers!🍺

If there was a star-system this is surely a 5-star dio. Gimme a break – the bike spokes, the debris, the figure-animation, the cobbles...oh yeah the tank’s not bad either. I’m going to have a little cry now.

Andrei – just brilliant

The helmeted German soldier scratching his chin while looking at the burned out interior...says it all for me...damn fine work!

Tim, If there’s no star system, there’s always that universal beer glasses raised high salute! … To Andrei, I’m buying! 🍺🍺🍺🍺🍺

Cheers!🍺

A stunning & remarkable recreation of a moment in history!! Aside from the great details, one thing stood out to me. Here's this huge metal monster of war, and propped up alongside are a couple bikes. And recalling that in this early stage of the war, both the French & German armies still made extensive use of bicycles for their troops.

Fantastic, though inspiring and discouraging at the same time, LOL.

What is the brand on those bicycles?

Tim and Mike, thanks for the beer and everyone thanks for your comments!


The bicycles are from MasterBox. There are both plastic and photo etched parts in the kit.

Thanks, I think that's the best 1/35th bicycle I've seen. Has anyone ever seen a more modern bicycle, e.g. a 1970s ten-speed sort of bike in that scale with the same level of detail?

Absolutely inspiring! I remember seeing the IP interior build over on missing lynx ages ago and was stunned at the detail and dedication committed to the interior. So, amazing now seeing the final presentation in all of it's glory.
