    This is a build that was influenced somewhat by the well known photos of the captured Lehr vehicle 313, and combined with the historical account of Lieutenant Werner, acting commander of the first company Panzerjäger-Lehr-Abteilung 130. On June 10th 1944, his formation was called upon to engage five British tanks that breached a command post just west of Tilly. The vehicle presented here though, is prior to this action, perhaps still on it's way to the front.

    Do you do commissions and live near Leeds? I'd quite like a Dunkirk diorama :)

    The Cooler King - thanks!

    Drew5233 - I reside in Canada. Yes, I do commissions (three currently slated from now till sometime next year), but doubt they'd handle well an airplane trip overseas.

    @ KevinC

    Camera is the Nikon D3100 with stock lens - Nikkor 18-55mm


    aperture locked in at f18
    ISO = 100
    white balance = auto
    metering = spot
    Active D-Lighting = ON

    Slightly under exposed photos (-0.7) to better capture colours. Shot under natural light, but not direct sunlight, and no flash. Photo shopped in Corel Photo-Paint X7. Contrast adjusted just enough so the background is near white, and auto option for unsharp mask.
