Welcome to The Amphibious Warfare blog, the place for you who can't decide whether you prefer mud to salty seas or vice versa. Here you'll find books, films, model kits and a few other things that are related to the world of amphibious warfare, many times from a modellers point of view. Do not hesitate to comment or give me a hint if you miss something here. Please do not expect this blog to get updated every day.



On the bench; LCM 3, Operation Torch 1942, part 6

Loaded my GMC truck tonight. Lots of small sacks are the reason for the 6x6 to hitch a ride to the beach. Rolled a long fat string of Milliput and made about 50 sacks. In order not to make a too heavy load I lined the insides of the cargo hold with Milliput and put a lid of plasticard before covering the whole lot with my little sacks. I'll let this dry a day or so and then start next painting session. Pressed the end of a brush handle to sculpt each end of the sacks to make them stand out a bit more. A bit of water was taking the finger prints away as Milliput tends to show such blemishes quite well.
