The Devil´s Den is an iconic place of the battle of Gettysburg made of some big and labirinthic boulders . It´s on the southern end of the battlefield facing the equally famous Little Round Top. It was the scene of some brutal fighting on the second day and, by the end of the day, was in the hands of the Confederates but covered with dead and wounded like other famous places nearby such as the Wheat Field, the Triangle or the Valley of Death.

This one is Generalmajor Erwin Rommel's Sdkfz 263 when commanding the 7th Panzer Division in the French campaign of May/June 1940. Rommel is a PSC figure provided in the Pz38t and variants box. It started as an artillerist and I just added the bottom part of the overcoat and a pair of binoculars. Rommel used many different overcoats during the war and the overcoat is not his most distinctive piece of clothing during the French campaign as it was hot during most of the campaign. This was the closest I got to a figure that could look like Rommel in 1940 and 1/72nd scale:
Here Rommel with Hoth at the village of Éplessier in the Somme using one of his overcoats.
The model is a beauty of simplicity and builds very quickly.

The trams are Ho scale from Atlas or Altaya. I bought and primed them years ago and lost track of its origin. I remember them being that first cheap sale of the collection so I bought three.
