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.
Most of our vehicles are one of a kind. We did a lot of conversions and added equipment to the tanks and softskins. Some were made with greenstuff but we used mostly the fantastic stuff from Ian Armstrong available via Heroics & Ros. Jens received his new 3D-printer and this amazing toy helped us to produce the deep wading equipment for the Universal carriers as well as the deep wading trunks for the tanks. Please note that these are the first models made with the help of the printer. In the meantime the printings are far more better than the stuff you see on these photos.
