Watch the Battle of Britain Like You've Never Seen It Before—In Miniature Form The 20-minute "Battle of Britain 1.72" is a stop-motion film featuring 1:72 scale models and tiny human figurines. It was made by Jerónimo Martínez Molina of Escorpio Pictures and Entertainment in Madrid, Spain. While it may lack the widescreen sweep of the original film and is almost two hours shorter, the 1:72 version deserves recognition.

Very clever… and the German aircraft were accurate in this one!

Nice, but really, we can no longer display a swastika in a historical clip? I don't remember JU-52's having the German Red/White/Black flag on the tail. My miniature collection will display historical markings.

He had swastikas on the tails of the He-111s, so I'm not sure why the tricolor tail on that Ju-52. Maybe the kit was made in Germany…? German model kits contain all kinds of contortions to avoid breaking the law against displaying the swastika.
