Roger Hurkman’s Diorama reimagined

Roger Hurkman’s Diorama reimagined

We’ve took one of the most famous diorama’s “Unternehmen Südwind, Hungary 1945” from acclaimed Dutch military modeler Roger Hurkmans and reimagined the scene. An RSO tractor struggling to pull over an artillery piece. We constructed a new landscape, inspired in hungary’s landscape, winter and architecture. We used over 15 images to compose this image.

Narva Isthmus February of 1944

The Battle of Narva was a campaign between the German Army Abteilung “Narwa” and the Soviet Leningrad Front fought for possession of the strategically important Narva Isthmus from 2 February to 10 August 1944. The campaign took place in Estonia and consisted of two major phases: the Battle for Narva Bridgehead (February to July 1944) and the battle for the Tannenberg line. The Soviet Kingisepp–Gdov Offensive and Narva Offensives (15–28 February, 1–4 March and 18–24 March) were part of the Red Army Winter Spring Campaign of 1944. Following Joseph Stalin’s “Broad Front” strategy, these battles coincided with the Dnieper–Carpathian Offensive (December 1943 – April 1944) and the Lvov–Sandomierz Offensive (July–August 1944). the Soviet Estonian operation pushed the front westward to the Narva River, aiming […]

III Panzer Korps at Kursk

III Panzer Korps at Kursk

A new cover made for the obscure III Panzer Korps at Kursk by Didier Lodieu. An excellent account on the south salient events, where II SS Panzer Korps holds all the spotlights in literature. Here Didier sheds light on the overburdened goals set for the weak III PK to defend the right flank of the advance of IISS PK and extend the front on an area very well defended and with many obstacles and rivers.

Three Days in Hell

Three Days in Hell

Three days in Hell, writen by George Bernage and published by Heimdal (France), which sheds new light on the chaotic events of the first days of the allied invasion in 1944.
