Hi everyone, This is diorama #3 related to Nachrichten Fern Aufklarung Kompanie 621 (NFAK 621) as you can see from the references below of the Sd.Kfz 251 likely attached to HQ of 90. leichte Afrika Division which inspired the diorama. The Kfz. 21 is a further conversion of a Plus Model Horch conversion to represent one of the vehicles used by Rommel and Bayerlein which is now owned in Germany. The Sd.kfz. 232 shown in the rear of the first reference photo is likely from Kampfgruppe Kiehl which was attached to Rommel. Other two armoured vehicles are modified AFV Club and the figures are modified and unmodified Dragon and ICM (Dragon's Bayerlein figure is an exact copy of the pose for him in Rommel's Kfz. 21 and the diorama). North African dioramas can obviously be challenging in terms of the scene going beyond just a palm tree and sand, so I decided to try some things to recreate a dried-up riverbed in Libya using crackle and still water products from AK. The tree is supposed to be an acacia. Anyway, hope you enjoy looking at it as much as I enjoyed creating all the components. References Here it is for comment... Thanks for looking, Jeremy Detailed Sd.Kfz. 251 interior before adding the top half... one figure later swapped out for the standing officer.
