Modeling the U.S. Army in WWII

Taking Aachen

Death lurks around every corner of the house-to-house action amid the rubble of the first German city to fall to the Americans.

Between Life and Death in the Hürtgen Forest

Amid the towering pines of the Hürtgen Forest, a line of weary infantry make their way through the mud to the front, flanked by overworked medics and rows of their dead comrades.

Mail Call for the Sons of Thor

In a moment of rare quiet on the frigid western front, the delivery of eagerly awaited mail is more precious to an artillery crew than another load of ammunition.

Le Liberatéur

Dropped from an airplane through a storm of burning lead, sucked into the head deep waters of a flooded field, pushed through the thickets of the bocage in search of his fellow fighters, comes a man to help liberate a continent from evil.

This is Verlinden's 120mm Easy Company figure. Along with being a nice change of pace, it's a good study of the WWII airborne uniform and gear at the time of D-Day.

T19 105mm Howitzer Motor Carriage

This is DML's model of one of the U.S. Army's early war attempts to get mobile firepower onto the field. The T19 was subsequently replaced by the M7 Priest after seeing action in North Africa and Sicily.


Another winter setting in the Ardennes, but with a different twist, featuring Dragon's M4 105mm Howitzer.

M2A1 105mm US Field Howitzer

This is a 1/72 artillery piece from Ace Models.

2.5 Ton CCKW Cargo Truck

Academy and Heller offer nice kits in 1/72 scale. The former includes supplies, and the latter has a canvas roof for the cargo bed.
