Rapid Fire! 20mm D-Day, the British beaches (part 9) - Characters and small bits.
Here we have the famous beachmaster of Juno fame (Cpt Douglas Maud in reality) on the 1962 D-Day movie. His true dog was a German Shepard but as Pluskatt already had one the movie directors chose 'Winston' the Bulldog instead. Britannia figures including the LCA.
The happy mayor of Colleville-sur-mer running to meet the liberators with its bottle of champagne. Also a Britannia figure.
Josef 'Pips' Priller on board of its FW190 looking for his 100th victory over the British beaches (which he would achieve on the 15th June). Airfix model.
The supporting Centaur of the RM Commando. A Revell model with a scratchbuilt 95mm gun and Britannia commander.
Next: probably the return wether to Iran-Iraq war or France 1940.
