Dio - Recon Element of 21st Pz. vs. the Russian mud.

A small recon group from 21st Panzer division is patrolling on the Eastern front in March of 1945 when one of their vehicles gets stuck in the center of the only road into or out of a deserted village. The patrol consists of a Sd.Kfz. 222 armored car and a schwimmwagen. They are battling the Russian mud to recover they're ensnared schwimmwagen. The driver of the 222 is being directed by his vehicle commander from outside the armored car while the crew of the schwimmer do their best to push it out as they sink into the mud themselves.

Great work on the outdoor dio. Nothing like the real thing. Good luck with your entry.

Now that looks like it was fun to do. Something tells me those nice new snow suits are going to be very dirty by the time they get unstuck.
Great looking vehicles and a great out door dio.

It's never too late to have a happy childhood.

When you get handed lemons - make lemonade!

Great use of bad weather - that's a very effective dio.

Looks like my neighborhood this winter. Very cool dio. The icy-ness looks and feels 1/1.
