Omaha beach invasion

Post by Darth Yoda on Sat Oct 31, 2009 9:59 pm

Yup, you herd me. I'm building this. But before I tell you about it I need you guys to be patient because this WILL take 2-3 months. More details later and I'll give you guys week by week updates on progress and I'll also show you orders from bricklink, trades, etc... To get you guys a good picture of how the Moc is going to come out. I'm sorry that I have nothing to show you but rest assured I will have something in a few days. So feel free to comment but no complaining about the lack of pictures. Wink

Minifigs: 30%

vehicles: 0%

Landscape: 20%

As you can see not too much and all I have to show right now are some pieces which I'm sure are too boring. To give all of you a sense of scale, It will be bigger than Phima's and smaller than dunechaser's. (If you haven't then you should)

So if you guys think I should add anything specific or any other ideas about anything please tell me. Wink

Thanks,
-Dy out

Mhmm...interesting.

Dark blue water I take it? And will the sand be tan or dark tan?

Also, what kind of vehicles will you be including?

But this sounds pretty epic, can't wait till it's done.

I'm actually thinking that the water will be trans dark blue. Wink
I might do something a lot like this old creation I made about a year ago:


About the sand, I'm still not sure... I don't even know if it will be snot or not. Wink

Dark tan would be cool but expensive... Shocked

Not the exact same setting but this is a good example of what it could look like (only the cliffs a lot higher).

Well, I'll have the tan pocket legs with either a satipo torso or a regular german torso with BA pot helmets...
Flesh heads of course with some BA weapons. Wink

For the nazis I do have some BF helmets and a mad eye moody torso which should look good....
I'm still figuring it out but I'll probably only have three of them (Nazi's)

For vehicles (Or structures) I'll have some hedgehogs, These kind of loading boats (1)

(Forgot the name) And I'm still not sure about the german side...any suggestions on that?

Higgins boat, you mean.

You could have a nebelwerfer, or a flakvierling...but I don't think those would be that close to the shore (the flakvierling). You could have a BMW R-75.

Dunno, Wikipedia & google are your friends, DY. Razz

I know that... I'm saying that it may look similar.

No, a U-Boat is something completely different. It's a submarine.

I made some progress and I think I'm almost done with them... Pictures will come after school. Wink

I also rounded up all the pieces for the beach and the water... (They will get more pieces from a bricklink order that I'm about to make)

Sounds to be epic, I can't wait to see how this turns out!

Fail. It's a german word. It originated in Germany.

Wikipedia wrote:U-boat is the anglicized version of the German word U-Boot (help·info), itself an abbreviation of Unterseeboot (undersea boat)

Fail at Failing. Underwater, undersea, same thing. I said that it ALSO STANDS for what you just said... I didn't say it wasn't German, but the word 'U-boat' isn't German, it's an abbreviation of a German word...
