Work In progress WWII French war-torn Town

edited July 2011 in Building and Techniques
LEGO refuses to make accurate WWII sets, so I set out to make my own WWII town. Set in Cherbourg, France, 1944, the town is an active battle between the Allies (Americans, British, Canadians, and French Resistance) and the Axis (Germans. It features a main street with modular buildings (damage not added yet), a dirt airfield and WIP forest, houses, and it will eventually have a canal with a bridge leading across it.

All weapons and helmets not made by LEGO are custom molded by BrickArms LTD, who produces accurate weaponry (mostly guns) and helmets specifically for LEGO minifgures.. Link to BrickArms:

Enough babble on my parts, here are the pictures! NOTE: This is still a WIP, please excuse the messiness. :o)

Please note that this is a WIP. Also, don't hesitate to ask for more pictures and/or views. ;)

Enjoy!

    I love it. I'm going to add Omaha Beach to my "someday" project list.

    Where will you get enough white flags for the French?

    I like the spitfire asso, and I used to have my custom P-38 Lightning.

    How did u do the spitfire wings? Love it.
    Needs more strewn body parts for realism.
    Like the attention to detail on the accuracy of the minifigs and vehicles for historical correctness, only to add trolls - nice touch!

    The wings are attached by modified bricks with knobs. In this case, two of these on both sides:
