Well I got round to finishing my D-Day build.

There are a few bits I'd like to address but right now I'm calling it finished, it's my take on the famous picture of Eisenhower meeting with the troops before they depart, ok so there may be some inaccuracies but its my tribute :smiling3:

Hope you all like it and please feel free to comment good or bad :smiling3:

Great stuff well thought out lots to look at, I wouldn't attempt to do that many figures and they are all so well painted love it.

Awesome Adrian,the time and effort you 've put in has really paid off. Just the painting of the figures alone is a testament to your dedication to this project. Very nicely done Sir and a real treat to admire the work that has gone onto it!

That's brilliant Adrian! The Dakota is excellent & the figures are so well painted - your eyes must have been begging for mercy! ;)

A fitting tribute to brave chaps.

Brilliant job Adrian. It's all great but it's strange how small details stand out, for me the canvas roof on the truck is very effective.
