Hi Wally,


unbelievable! We are also working on a 1/300 diorama of Sword Beach. The goal is to show the assault wave 1:1 in vehicles and ships. What models did you use? Did you scratch-build them? It is not so easy because most of the vehicles/ships don't exists in the variants they used for the landings.

Here is our website which hasn't been updated for a long time as I was involved in my day-to-day job and concentrated on painting the ships/vehicles, etc.

In the meantime the ships are 80% finished and I start with the vehicles. My club mate is working on the table + the buildings. There will be an update shortly and that will give you a better idea about the project.


Do you have photos of your diorama?
