Last prep before D-day

Invasion preparations for D-Day


Really just a quick post of the boards and some prepping taking place prior to yesterday's D-Day Sword Beach Invasion


Hemmbalk and sandbag production line


Tobruk pits, signs and telegraph posts, Czech Hedhogs taking shape


I have not modeled an aircraft since 1981, so this was quite an interesting experience. My skills have improved, but I still struggled with getting those invasion stripes right on an odd-shaped  fuselage! (almost pear-shaped in cross section)
Purposely left the tail of the Horsa detachable, as to reflect Airlanding platoons and their equipment being unloaded after the landing


A river (and a canal) flows through it: Making rivers

Sword Beach: Lion/Hermanville -sur-Mer and Luc-sur-Mer taking shape.
21.Panzer Division inspecting the building work on the observation tower at the (as yet unbuilt) Casino at Riva Bella


Harbour inlet to Ouistreham, Pegasus Bridge taking shape, as does the Orne River Canal and lock
