Yes, and as I said now that Baronsat has run out...

I AM GOING TO NEED SOME EUROPEAN HELP TO GET M1 HELMETS.

Thank you, that is all.

I really like the appearance of the water- that looks realistic. Obviously you've got to put rubbish all over the beach as the Germans did to block the invasion. If you can try to offset the landing craft in the water, tilting it just to give the viewer some nice angle pleasures for the eye. The cliff face and rocks with pillboxes in them is what should make the moc. Be sure to add a lot of detail there and try to make the cliff faces relatively high. Finally the beach itself should not be snot. Sand is coarse and looks more realistic with studs on top. That help? Smile

Yes it does! I love the idea of the boat being sideways. And as I said, the beach is just a placeholder...

Oh, and Hazel now carries Dark green M1 helmets so I'm saved!

Baronsat said that he will be restocked by the 15th of this month, so you shouldn't have to wait too long...

Mhmm.

I'm sorry, Kashyyk trooper torso doesn't work. What could work is the Luke Skywalker torso with dk. grey arms and legs, or the Harry potter statue torso with dk. bley arms and legs.

Officer looks good, as do the americans, but hopefully you'll still be changing that female face.

Random pieces look good, beach looks great, although I might add some studs to the water so that you can stick some trans clear cheeses on there to make small waves. Also, I envy your large amount of tan plates...

I think that I will keep that female face...

I mean, it is a bit girlish but there are no other faces like that (That are boys) and I think it really will portray that part of the Moc very well.

That's a good idea for the sniper though... I'll use the luck torso!

Good job on your moc. Hope it turns out great. I like the use of star wars parts for the Germans. Where did you get the weapons? Brickarms?

Yes, brickarms is correct. And I won't be able to make much progress until trades come COUGHTACCOUGH and I make a bricklink order for another baseplate and some other slopes and things like that...

Inaccurate and overpriced. Don't bother buying them. People only buy them for the Prototypes, and in a few months, they'll be worth 1-2$ each instead of 20$ for one.

Thanks for the info. I wouldn't have bought one anyway. I would like to spend my money on one of cac's clones, star wars lego sets, or save up for a xbox 360.

Ohai! Razz

It takes along time for my hamster to run to Portsmouth and give it to my pet seal, but don't worry, my polar bear is ready to get it off my seal and go straight for your house. Wink

What? It saves me paying 2 shipping. Razz

Definitely love the water, and although I know others will disagree I like the old dark gray in the cliffs, it gives it a more "rocky" color.

Those who disobey will be punished! I agree with the rock idea, it's actually realistic and is easier (Razz)
