D-Day 70th Anniversary Group Build

Recommended Posts

I will be making a Ju88C or R. several were lost by ZG1 (ex-KG40) over the beaches in the days following 6th June. I think a couple of He177s and even a Mistel were lost trying to attack the ships.

could go with a flak 88 they made tankers lives hell in the bocage or .mk1v panzers wittmann and his tigers turned up as well later on

I am doing a little bit of research for a Do-217 or a Ju-188 that were used for bombing and minelaying in the seine estury just after D-Day. I have both in 1/48 so maybee that is a posebility.

But the desicion hasn't been made jet, so it could always become a allied airplane in the end.

cheers,

I've been considering building the Tiger in which Wittman made his foolhardy attack in Villers-Bocage. I'd like 1/48 but I can't find any suitable turret numbers.

Very poignant. As a wretched American, I was inclining more towards the triumphalist for mine. Still a rough draft:

Both very good. I found out today (thanks Gingerbob) that the banners must be no bigger than 400 x 150 pixel - I am rather sure that your banner will be too big Smudge. You will not be able to add it to your subline if it exceeds the max size.

I have done a simple banner for this build and put it up for consideration.................

d-daybanner-1_zpsf840e260.jpg

Smudge

"Simple" is sometimes the best.

It's from "The Longest Day".Isn't it ?

My favourite war movie. If I recall correctly. The first movie where everyone spoke their own language.

Even movies like "The battle of Midway" still had English speaking Japanese. :wall:

Oh...and the one with Tom Cruise,Valkyrie.Starting in German and slowly going over to English. The origional film in German is much better.

Anyway...cool banner !

Now you have made me curious of your build.

I'll be building a Cromwell tank - specifically Little Audrey of B Squadron, 1st Royal Tank Regiment.

http://www.desertrats.org.uk/assoc/Memorial_with_new_plaque.jpg

I'd like to depict it on arrival to Felixstowe docks on 4 June 1944, so I will be building it sat on a Scammell tank transporter. I've no idea if Little Audrey was actually delivered on a Scammell, but I'm gonna go for it anyway...

That is great Enzo. I think I will be doing a Mustang III (1/72) and a Mustang Mk. 1A (1/48). The 1A will be done together with the Mustang II GB.

Great to see such a variety of items being built.

Still searching for the Valom Albermarle in the stash, to be built as a glider tug with invasion stripes, I don't have a glider so at least I only have to finish the tug, assuming it allows itself to be found of course !

Cheers Pat
