    The Invasion of Normandy. D-Day.

    I think this topic is worth keeping here, rather than merging it with any existing topics in the WW2 forum.... reason being is that I vaguely(yes vaguely) remember doing quite a few planes that came with D-Day decals, MatchBox I presume. Are they still around, and what about any specific AFVs from this period, I know about the AFV Club AF 35167 Churchill Mk.III AVRE, the Dragon 6182 Firefly Vc has some stenciling for D-Day, a few other Sherman tank kits would possible have markings included. I'm guessing there are D-Day figures aswell.
    What about aircraft kits today, any around with D-Day decals still?

      Oh I have seen oooooodles of D-Day kits over the years. The black n white invasion striped aircraft are easy to spot.
      Life is change. Built models for decades.
      Not sure anyone here actually knows the real me.
      I didn't for a long time either.

        I always liked the Mk.IV Centaur as well. The 95mm support version. I read somewhere that they had some of these on barges with no engines in them to hold more ammo and used them for beach fire support. Later fitting them with engines and using them inland.

          I remember reading The Longest Day while in High School, and thinking after I had finished it "my God, what those guys went through".

            God Bless every man that set foot in Europe that fateful day. They deserve to be remembered for the Heros they were. Unselfishly putting their lives on the line so other, repeat, so others could be freedom. Many today have forgotten that freedom in not free it has been, is,and will be paid for in the blood of the one who believe in the principles for freedom.

            Thank you to each and every one of them.
