This is my depiction of the counter-attack by the "Hitlerjugend" Division on Bretteville l'orgueilleuse, held by the Canadians in June 1944. The two self-propelled guns are from Esci, but the entire casemate was redone in plastic card. The howitzers are original Alby overmouldings, grafted with an Aber metal barrel and a "homemade" aluminum sliding rail. Finally, the tracks are from OKB. Figures are Caesar multi-poses. The section leader's Kubelwagen is an Academy with minor upgrades.
