The Road to Minsk


This panzer grenadier, working his way through Russian fields, takes a drink to ward off the summer heat of 1941.


Oblivious to his wound and with his Mauser over his shoulder, this grenadier follows his comrades, trudging through high Russian grass "On the Road to Minsk".


Above: A BMW crew pauses for a map check on "the Road to Minsk" as a camoulflaged panzer grenadier looks on. The map is an actual miniature of a real road map of Belorussia, or Belarus as it is now called.





Above: This tank commander scans the road ahead while standing on his Panzer II. His leather jacket shows the wear and tear of war. His belt is actually car pinstriping that I often use for straps and belts. The buckle is a link from a cable neck chain.
Left: The center of the diorama. I always show my tanks running over some kind of bump or rock - this bends the track upwards and is an added touch of realism.
