Nice work, James!

I like your question "Is it accurate?" I have seen photos of wrecked German columns, and the amount of [auto-censored] they schlepped around is truly astonishing. It's not likely they had only "Special Generators #31" all the time, and probably would've used whatever they could steal or otherwise appropriate.

Looks like a Breuer WG 3000 (3kW) generator...:
