Omaha Beach Diorama by Antton

Antton made this diorama for his History Fair. And he won! Now he is taking it to the County level competition with it.

Here is what he has to say about making it:

The whole model is a 1:72 scale and the tanks, the artillery , the soldiers and the Lcm3 landing crafts are all unimax models and I hand painted them.

As far as the water and terrain I used your videos as guide lines as well as with the newspaper and plaster cloth base.

The bunker is actually from italeri. The tank is a tiger tank or Panzerkampfwagen Tiger Ausf. E and the two Sherman tanks and then the German half track , the jeep and the two boats are actually Lcm3 landing crafts which are bigger than the regular Higgins boat landing craft.
