Jeff,

It looks like your dio/vignette is post landing at Dieppe. Are you planning to add the waterproofing on the turret and hull as seen on knocked out Churchills on the beach?

On a side note I live about 10 minutes from the King’s Own Calgary Regimental (former Calgary Regiment-Tanks) museum....lots of fantastic Dieppe landing history. While they are few in numbers I’ve been very lucky to have chatted with Veterans from the Calgary Tanks who landed at Dieppe...very brave men who became POWs after their tanks were knocked out.

I was looking at that Jason , but in the pics I have I see none all destroyed, on one side I might add to a door.

Thanks to Chris and Roy, if it was not for those PITA wheels I might want to do a carpet layer one.

Or the Mortar one.

D Day maybe.

Well a tad more.
Will blend the tank in better when I glue it on still things to add.

I stood on that beach 2 years ago and that's a pretty good representation of it, let me tell you. Well done.

Thanks a bunch Paul, it is hard to find that stuff,especially in scale.

Well almost done Track blocks drying.
But model on and glued.
Think I might do the Mortar one or Carpet layer.

Cheers

Jeff
