Something I have always wanted to do is a D-Day US Navy LCM (Landing Craft Mechanized) but have always been worried about doing sea water. But when my local club said the group build was D-Day theme then it was time to conquer my 'fear of the wa[...]

Maiale, The diorama

Vignettes on the subject- Car + aircraft.
