A PBI battalion arrives and the trucks unloads its cargo. This time no Half Tracks as the US infantry can easily turn from Mechanized to Motorized with 2-1/2 GMC trucks instead of HT's.
The trucks are Frontline wargaming and the 3/4 ton truck is ESCI. The infantry is a mixture of all available plastics: Airfix, Matchbox, Atlantic but mostly ESCI and Revell.
The MG's of the Heavy Weapons Company.
And the mortars (60mm and 81mm). The ESCI HMG firer became a mortar man for the 60mm mortar. Many arms and torsos were carved, glued, heated and bended in ways only Daesh or Torquemada could describe.
Two different Command stands from figures you all recognize.
I made six differently based US infantry battalions for easy recognition. I also have 7 surplus figures for each of the eighteen companies for the Omaha scenario standing inside their LCVP's but that will be for another post.
The trucks are a Frontline Wargaming, Hasegawa and two venerable Airfix soft plastic ones can be seen in the top row to the left.
Next: the 76mm Shermans.
