    The Day Before & The Day After D-Day

    This is my first entry for Ryan's Summer Group Bash: "GET OFF THE BEACH"
    I think the title speaks for its self but it's a lieutenant in the 101st airborne division preparing to jump into France the night before Operation Neptune and then the same man after the longest day.

    That's not only a great idea but also a catchy title. Nice work!

    Well done, Nigel. That's a good job of matching the two. Do you purchase Depp sculpts in bulk lots? (giggle)

    Excellent figure and idea, my only quibble as far as accuracy is concerned I'd change the chute from a T7 to a T5 the one with the buckle fastening across the chest ( I have a couple of soldier story ones if you'd like one pm me)
    and the griswold bag for his rifle should be the earlier break down version, again if you'd like one pm me no charge, anyway hope you don't mind me pointing these small things out, still a great idea and figure.

    I'll be the first to admit there are several inaccuracies on this one as I really just went with what I had. But I will certainly bear you in mind when I tackle this subject again in more detail
