The Atlantic Wall was a formidable series of fortifications stretching from France to Norway, and to breach it, the Allies needed special equipment. The point chosen to penetrate the seemingly impregnable fortress of Europe was Normandy, and D-Day was set as June 6, 1944. The massive seaborne invasion involved the greatest armada ever assembled, including a staggering 6939 naval vessels! This total included 4126 specialist landing ships/craft. Dragon’s new 1/72 diorama set features one such landing craft, an LCM(3), also known as a “Higgins” boat. The vessel was capable of carrying a single Sherman tank or 60 soldiers.

Dragon Armor's fantastic new set includes such a landing craft, plus an accurate and well-detailed M4A1 tank kit. The tank has been readied for the invasion by having deep-water wading stacks added. The M4A1 tank accurately reflects how a tank would have appeared when storming the beaches of Normandy. But there’s much more included in this Dragon Armor Diorama Set! A team of six U.S. infantrymen, a crew of three sailors for the LCM(3), plus a series of beach obstacles (so-called “hedgehogs”), are all offered. All these components come together on a complete diorama base provided in the box. Each item has been assembled and painted with great care. This is a truly comprehensive set that brings D-Day to life, thus enabling modelers to recreate one of the most momentous days of WWII!
