Very nice. It looks awesome, esp. the piece of Liberty Ship. Great job.

One small niggle I have. If you look at the actual photo, there are two sailors/soldiers on the deck holding guide lines (one front, one rear) that go to the jeep to stabilize it. If you look at your overhead pic, you will see the jeep has rotated and is not lined up with the landing craft. In this orientation, it will hit the side of the landing craft. If you add a line to the jeep and to either the guy in the landing craft or a guy above, you can stabilize the jeep and bring it back in line with the landing craft.

Convincing results on scratch-building the ship! Really like your work on the LCM. Agree with Gino about needing a guide-line for the jeep. Otherwise the whole scene looks fine!

Yes I agree about the rope and the 2 sailors and I had planned on doing that too. I still may but i've been procrastinating so much that I just ended up wanting to share where I was at. Also getting figure for Navy, well there doesn't seem to be many out there.

great job. I doubt I would want to make the "ride down" though!

Wow. WOW! Showstopper Chad, if you ever “show” or properly display this the overhead light source is essential because the shadows really make it sing. Brilliant idea & execution (well OK would have preferred very dark green water) so what’s next?

Great Work on an unusual topic.
I like the Idea and your execution is on point.
This one should get some well deserved attention when displayed on shows

Cheers!
