Iwo Jima Amphibious operations

1/700 Scale

This diorama is Iwo jima landing operation.
Actually, the actual landing was carried out with LVT and Sherman Tank, but the LVT and sherman tank’s details were very low. So I exclude them.
This diorama is distant from historical facts.
At that time, the Tennessee warships fired the SuribachI Mountains, and the Marine landed in Green Beach near Suriba Mountain. But it is quite far from there.
