Nice pair Pawel! Operation Torch was our first big amphibious assault, and it set the foundation for the rest of the war. Its success allowed us to build on it, repeat its success around the world, and win the war! Thanks for posting!

Sweet job! I love the maps that put everything into context.

 

Mark,

 

I've prepared historical description, but in my native language.

On the private website are attached projects with models photos and maps as a visualisation historical event.

 

I'm not modeller focused only on the technology. In the case technology is way to build model kits into

interested historical project. The root is history, and historical sources.

 

Everybady has individual way in hobby ...
