Ah, I have fond memories of painting up a dozen of those models for the Market Garden game I worked on a few years back. Yours came out nicer, though. I think I should have based mine. Can't tell you how many damn paddles fell off.

Nice stuff Dave. :good:

Did you have to get extra crews for them or do they come with that many ? I'm thought they only come with four guys.

yes jezomono's they only came with 4 figures, i bought some when they first came out many years ago and a certain member was kind enough to funish me with extra figures!! i brought 2 new boats and figures this year and the casting on the boats wasnt as good as the ones years ago,but saying that iam of too get some more figures off britannia as mr Dave Howitt is a nice chap and iam sure he will sell me some extra crews .At present iam short on figures for my forth boat!! :good:

I filled in my boats with seated infantry intended for vehicles and random crouching figures as well. heck, a few prone guys probably wouldn't go amiss!

A friend of mine was interviewing a veteran from the 504th a couple of weeks ago. He participated in the crossing and said that Major Julian Cook (the Redford character) didn't make the crossing under fire- he went over later.
