    This vignette is set in the western Egyptian desert in 1942, and shows a British M3 Lee tank advancing past an abandoned, knocked out Panzerkampfwagen II.  Both kits are Tamiya.  The Lee is from a very old Tamiya kit that was sold as a consignment from someone’s unbuilt collection.  I paid eight dollars for it, and it turned out to be a very nice kit.  The PzKpfw II is also an older Tamiya kit.  The palm tree is a resin and photoetch kit from Verlindin, and turned out to be beautiful.
