One of the most famous vehicles of the D-Day beaches were the Sherman DD (Duplex Drive). No surprise many people asked for images. As we needed three different types – on board the landing craft with raised screen, swimming and the tanks with lowered screens on the beaches – this was the most time consuming work as we needed one single vehicle three times! As the onboard-type is still in the production phase (thanks Ian!) we can only show the other two types.

Starting with the model + some green-stuff-modifications. Models are GHQ.
