I used over forty guys on this production ..my biggest production yet .. lol!
Body count is huge and took  me about 6 hrs to set up and photograph....
A bit smaller  scale next time me thinks,,,, Very Happy

Get yourself a cup of tea or coffee. This is going to be a long one... lol!

After repeated attempts to take Arnhem  bridge and taking heavy losses and ammunition running low ,during the night ,what's left of major John frosts  troops have retreated back to the town of Arnhem.

A German staff officer and his aid are heading toward There headquarters not realising the British are held up in the town.





































The famous red beret....ha ha.... let's see how it fits





























Ok lads let's get the bodies of the street..






I'll think I'll have that back ..laddie... ts not for the likes of you..










We had better be ready.. it won't be long before they realise we've left the bridge


















































































































































Right let's get our lads off the street.... they'll be back...
















































Oh..Shi...

















































































Lads we've nothing left.... no ammo ,  no where to go...  you've done your country proud...
















Englanders .. you are surrounded . You have fought bravely ..come out and no more will die..














Major .... for you ze war iz Ozer..

I'v just finished reading and looking through all the pictures from Market garden .. episode 2 Arnhem and WOW I was blown away with looking through the pictures. I'v picked my 5 that were my favourite that you had taken for the story and they are











I bet you nearly taken all day setting up, positioning each figure for a picture shot and taken all them pictures but I also bet you had lots and lots of fun doing it Very Happy.

Very very well done Wink.

I know how time consuming this is , and your getting very good at it . I would in the future though , split your photo story up into smaller parts , think you could of got maybe 5 or 6 episodes out of this . Excellent stuff .

Thanks for the comments guys....

No. Decided not to torch the whole village dal.. lol!

Chip... I did think about splitting it up but as I was uploading them , I was on a roll and threw them all together...although it took me over an hour to upload them all

Ackiess. Glad you enjoyed the photos.... it did take a long time ...about 6 hours .. but I enjoyed it ..

Peterogers.. thanks for your kind words... although I won't be rushing to do another on this scale , 40 odd guys and the set up...
I think two guys in the. Front room at a tea party next time.... lol!

cheers cheers cheers !!

..and what a body count!! A bridge too far has nothing on this!

I can well believe it all took 6 hours to photograph. Add the village build time and your commitment to VAM truly is above and beyond!

How awesome would that village set-up have been to have had as a kid? Didn't the Marx Lone Ranger have a similar one in a TV advert in the 70's?

You must have put a lot of time and effort in buidling these dioramas and the result is an extraordinary.

Thanks for sharing these fantastic pics !
