Pointe du Hoc D-Day diorama (1/72 scale)
Guy S W DeLillio

This 1/72nd-scale scene portrays the 2d US Rangers attacking and seizing Pointe Du Hoc. The DUKW's are Airfix and both were extensively modified, especially the DUKW mounting a 100 foot fire ladder tipped with twin MG's to fire on enemy troops atop the cliffs. The 2d Rangers are from Airfix, Battlefield Miniatures and Britannia. One LCA is from Britannia and the other was scratch built.
