HINTEN DEN VORNE is a small military depot somewhere in Germany during 1943.  The layout, which measures only 4 feet by 1 foot, was developed to allow use of the Dragon Models 1:144 scale ‘PanzerDepot’ models which are now sadly largely unobtainable. 

Although manufactured as static models, the rail vehicles have all been converted to run on N gauge finescale track.

Although 1;144 scale compared to the European N Gauge 1:160 scale, careful juxtaposition of features and stock largely disguises this discrepancy.  Non military rolling stock is mainly Fleischmann

1:144 military vehicles and German ‘Wehrmacht Soldaten’ are from a variety of Wargames suppliers.
