Some extra figures from my spares box I'm going to use , top three modified.
Still have to put together Masterbox's D-Day figure set





I've also made some of those rectangle concrete blocks to go on the bottom of the Hedgehogs ,
waiting for the plaster to set

Looking at what you have planned I'm thinking this kit may have been the better option than the other ones. A bit more dramatic.




My wife calls me a curmudgeon. I haven't looked it up but I assume it means "fun loving and free spirited" or some such twaddle. I inform and perform over at www.militarymodels.co.nz and stick my oar in here as well. My passion is WWII 1/35 armour but I'm coming around to liking the odd 1/32 thing...

It's really taking shape now the figures are being added. How many troops are you going to have coming out of the LCVP?

It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

4in x 3in test ...my second attempt at trying to make the surf .
my first try was just too blue , it looked good with a 1/600 destroyer beside it for deep ocean , so tried again , this time I mixed a small amount of olive drab into the silicone , spread it over the blue , then mixed another small amount with some brown for the churned up sand.
This stuff is quite hard to manipulate because it so sticky , after it had set abit , I added some of the straight clear silicone to help smoothen some of the surface

Thanks everyone

I stirred the acrylic paint into the silicone , just use very small amounts of paint .
For the white water , while the silicone was still a bit tacky , I just added some white using my fingertip , then went over with some more of the clear , here and there

Looking good. Have the other ones arrived yet ?

What are the yellow sticks they're mounted on ?
