Dio- "Take Care Of My Men"
Sepp Dietrich in Normandy, 1944



About a year ago, I made a special display at home and got many of my vehicles out of their storage area. I had a group of wounded SS that had not used or photographed and decided to place them in the three color camo Horch, as part of the display. I had not had the chance to get them out in the sun since then until last weekend. Used some figures from my SS in Normandy inventory. Also added a couple of the officer figures from my HJ officer group.
Dietrich is talking to SS-Obersturmbannführer Dr. Rolf Schulz( Abteilung Commander
SS-Sanitatsabteilung 12; 12.SS Pz Division "Hitlerjugend") and to Dietrich's left is SS-Sturmbahnnfuhrer Hans Waldmuller (Commander I./SS-Pz Gren Rgt. 25 ;12.SS-Pz Division "Hitlerjugend")
Vehicles all have been seen before DML SS Kettenkrad, Toy Metal BMW and Zundapp, Taowan Horch, Mardon Callanta 251 with RTT links and driver wheel and a DML Kubel.

Thanks!
No problem with the link.
It had been VERY dry here. Best time of the year here (dry) is February to May.
Now we get A LOT more rain. But the yard needed the rain BADLY.
Now maybe my battle against the "dreaded white fly" can have a chance. When it rains very little, nothing grown much.

Thanks again for the positive comments.

I keep coming back to this one, lots of emotion in the sculpts (great choices), beautiful photography as always and killer work on the vehicles and figures but I can almost see in the 1/6 plastic the resignation of the wounded and the determination of those still in the fight....
superb outdoor shoot, one of your best

Thanks guys! Much appreciate all the feedback.
As usual I took some images as soon as I set up(you never know if it is going to start raining unexpectedly!), which was bright sunlight. But it was early enough (8:30a) that the light was soft. I then waited for some clouds as I prefer that light with less contrast. On this case I tok many images, some with a cloud covering the sun and others with the sun directly and liked both groups. Some of the images were not duplicated, so here I used some of both groups. If you want to see more images of this set up, you can check out this link:

It is the first time I tried the super low angle and angled up to the figures, taking the image blind and these turned out much better than I expected.

Thanks again for the comments and I'm glad you enjoyed this set up.
