Welcome to my page!

Hello,

here I present my work. I create dioramas in the time period of World War II and everything only in the scale 1/144.
My main focus are tanks but from time to time a take a look at submarines, interesting airplanes and small ships.

Widerstandsnest 28 in Bernières-sur-Mer Bunker R 600 with 5 kwk

At the Atlantic coast you can find a lot of German Bunkers. Normally they belong to one of the Regelbauten, a list of standazid types of Bunkers. Not so in Bernières-sur-Mer. Here we find a special combination of two  Regelbauten. This Bunker was armed with a 5 cm Kwk gun. The Bunker is located on the beach, directly on the boulevard of Bernières-sur-Mer. This section of the beach was attacked by the Canadian and British troops.
On D-Day 1944 the 3rd Canadian Infantry Division landed at this spot. After some hours of fighting they liberated Bernieres-sur-Mer.

My diorama shows the Bunker with the 5 kwk gun, some days before the Invasion. The obstacles are wrong, mostly you could find them in the Nederlands, but I added them as otherwise I had the feeling, the diorama would look so empty. The Kuebelwagen is from Wargames South (link) and the 5 kwk gun comes from CDG (link), a famous producer of 3D printed tanks and accessorizes. 




R600 with 5 kwk

The bunker itself was designed by myself and printed in with a 3D printer. To safe material I made the top separate and glued it later. So it was no problem to install the gun inside the Bunker. The officers and the crew are all from the German railway gun Leopold from Dragon.


Here some interesting links with pictures from the Original which I found:
