I have the groundwork done on my winter diorama of a Kingtiger and a Kubelwagen driving past a M4 Sherman that has run out of gas. Both sides of the road are lined with tall pine trees that I made.

All I have to do is put on the snow and put the infantry on the road walking.

And I need a clever name for it.

Thanks!

Maybe you could put in some of the german infantry soldiers scavenging the sherman. Looking for things that were left behind.
Packages of cigs were always valuable in those days and the jerries would look in every tank that stood next to the road.

just a thought

How "imaginative of me" : out of gas

Aternatively:

"Got fuel?"
Out run
"I told you German tanks had larger fuel tanks!"
Guess who's the fuel hog now, eh?

Maybe you could steal an advertising line from a old Volkswagon magazine ad. Nothing leaps to mind at the moment., but there has to be something.
Dig through a pile of old magazines for Volkswagon ads, clip and glue it across the front.
Sort of plays off the Porche (sp?) Tiger-Volkswagon connection.

I'm assumming that your dio is set around the time of the Ardenne Offensive and if it is what about something like " Thought We Had The Fuel Shortage "

Try "Reversal of Fortune" seeing that the germans always had a problem with fuel shortages during the mid to late stages of the war.My $.02 worth.
