Hello all

This post is a mark of respect to the Canadians who took part not only in WW2
but poignantly today, D-Day.

I made the Dragon Sherman 1/6 scale tank and applied Canadian markings
although these are not specifically surrounding the Normandy Campaign.

The markings relate to C-squadron, Three Rivers Regiment.

This is part of my ongoing project of dedicating specific models relevant to
the Commonwealth countries who took part in various theatres of WW2.

I haven't, of course, omitted the United States-I am constructing the Dragon 1/6
Willys jeep to their memory.

A small gesture but let's hope we can all live in peace!

Regards.

Alan

Lovely work Alan, looks super cool and boy is that an impressive size in 1:6 scale. Just awesome and very thought provoking too what with the current 75th D-Day Anniversary.

A great tribute, very well done.Drool ThumpUp

Fantastic ,and thats one strong table you've got there
Man he took his time in the sun
Had a dream to understand
A single grain of sand
He gave birth to poetry
But one day will cease to be
Greet the last light of the library...We were here!
