Hello Guys

Here's something i did recently and figured i'd post it for the anniversary of D-DAY today June 6th. As always i pick up inspiration from the books i have been reading. Read several books on the Filthy Thirteen and their heroic actions during the Normandy campaign. I was inspired to look more closely at one of the members in this famed Demolition Team. . This individual struck a chord with me right away as there were similarities between us. He's name was Miguel "Mike" Marquez and he was a demo expert just like Jake McNiece and the rest of the Filthy Thirteen. i took several liberties in my depiction in this small diorama of mine. Although it was Jake McNiece and Jack Agnew who detonated the explosives on the Douve River on D-Day, Mike Marquez was in the thick of it collecting TNT for Jake and providing covering fire with Jack's Springfield rifle, i went ahead and made him the one turning the detonator in my small Dio as he was also trained to do the same job as Jake, Jack and the rest of the team, if need be. An artistic license if you wil on my part..Anyways here's;

A small tribute to

The Filthy Thirteen and
Miguel "Mike' Marquez

Ready for the boom!
