In this diorama I wanted to showcase mainly the British vehicles I have recently completed. You’ll see PSC and Airfix, with vehicles and figures from both makers, in a setting that has stone houses and a walled farm (Airfix’s La Haye Sainte!), recalling the terrain through which British forces had to battle during Operation Epsom in late June, 1944.
