Re: Anzac Cove battlefield

While not directly related to the Anzac Cove landings, here are some X-lighters from PT Dockyard. These LCIs were used by the British for the Suvla Bay landings later:

Re: Anzac Cove battlefield

Here is a photo of a steam pinnace and tows, heading to pick up ANZAC troops for the landing. The boats are 1:600 scale mounted on ultra thin plywood measuring 1.25" x 2.5".

Re: Anzac Cove battlefield

Thanks Norm. I will post some more pics as the project evolves. Currently there is a terrain mat laid over the Hexon contours. The mat is slowly conforming to the contours. Then I will add the beach, shrubby landscaping, dirt road, etc.
