😄 Hi Robert, thanks for noticing this very summer-mood project. I uploaded in a photoalbum the relevant photos of the originals that inspired the build... Please ignore the crappy webcam pics (I wont dignify them by calling them "photos") I also posted, just to show that, well, I've more or less built the thing... In any case, my built models are not yet to Scalemates standards... And, in this case, I still have to order a couple of figures before the project is really completed. Anyway - there, you have it - thanks for the interest!

Come on, Alex. Nothing to be shy of - I know the model and you have really done a good job (I wonder how you managed with the title below windscreen and these headlights - really looking the part). I must say I sorry now I already built and painted my model of GPA in military guise... You inspired me to find another kit 😄

Thank you, Robert, you are too kind! The registration plates and the name below windscreen ("Arromanches IV" - a joke on the French aircraft carrier?) were custom decals made by SCM Brand: LM Decals GR (surely available, if anyone is interested). Regarding the oversized (civilian?) headlights, there may have been more elegant ways, but I just used cut-down pieces of F-5 wingtip tanks, filled with Clearfix. I also scratched a little foldable ladder, in the back, which I think enabled swimmers to climb back to the vessel... Vehicles in 1:72 are new to me and I'm still learning - thank again, everyone, for the likes and support!
