This will be my "D-Day 75 Competition Entry". The Triumph 3HW was used throughout WWII in all theatres, including D-Day and was often seen buzzing around from the front, back to HQ carrying all manner of information in regards to how the invasion was progressing, needs of the troops, positions of the enemy etc, where radio would have given away too much information.
I will be building the Italeri 1:9 scale 3HW with the markings of Divisional Signals, Normandie 1944. Some scratch building will be involved and weathered to suit the conditions of the time.

A nice choice of kit Daran, should build into a very nice model with your skills. I'll look forward to seeing it come together. ThumpUp

I posted a kit review of this three years ago when I was posting as 'Modelmania', so I know exactly what you'll be playing with - it's a nicely detailed model:

That's a nice solid start to your build Daran, looking good so far and should look very cool when you've finished it!

Well done mate and good luck in the competition. Cool ThumpUp
