Rapid Fire! 20mm - 16. Luftwaffe Field Division, Normandy 44, part 5: Russian limbers painted, Marders and Opel Blitz buses.

Russian limbers already painted and parading for inspection from Feld General Von Zomzing.

The limbers got out pretty well in my opinion. The reading guy keeps on testing Gestapo nerves...
My imaginary Feld General Von Zomzing is a Luftwaffe metal figure from an undetermined brand. The other officer is an Airfix conversion and the driver is an Atlantic figüre. The staff car is Frontline Wargaming.
The Marder's M are a true probability for the SPG company of the 16.LwFD instead of the Stug III. So I drybrushed and based two from Altaya I was hoping to place somewhere and here they are serving the ex-airmen. The crew are plastic conversions on Esci and Fujimi bodies.
The Opel Blitz Buses are (L) Britannia and (R) SHQ and are a quite probable means of transport for the jägers. Both of them are very easy to build and paint as they have 5 pieces each total.
Next: the 122mm howitzer battalion.
