How can you not fall in love with the amazing work of nineteenth century British painter John Atkinson Grimshaw, a master of moonlit scenery.

Panzer: Sturmgeschütz III, ausf F/8
A somewhat stern looking StuG man in front of a selection of older and newer Stug's. The Ausf F/8 behind him must be a brand new delivery since it still has the chassis production number stenciled to the front mudguard. The spare tracks fitted to the bow armour plate also retains their factory applied coat of dark yellow paint, soon to be worn off with use.Note how the Stug on the left has been protected against the elements by adding a pyramid-shaped cover made form Zeltbahn, the ingenious German Army serviceman's waterproof poncho which could be grouped together to form tents.
