World War II MOCs from Brincka 2013

MOVE! MOVE! MOVE!!!

Since 2008 I didn’t show up at an exhibition like Brincka 2013 and was a nice surprise to found a set of historical MOCs from WWII of high quality, specially after knowing that most of them were built by a TFOL with 15 years old!

The landing craft carrying the troops towards the beach is a classical scene, specially since the success of “Saving Private Ryan” movie. The above picture is my attempt to capture the emotion of that stressful moment! The MOC, however, is authored by Nuno Taborda and is a perfect replica of the Normandy’s landing crafts.

The infantry is well supported by an amazing army of vehicles and artillery built by Luís Pedro, the TFOL I mention earlier. Starting with this gorgeous Light M5 Stuart, Luís presented 25 highly detailed vehicles, including tanks, trucks, medical transport and cannons.

The soft top of the trucks were one of my favorite details. Luís get those from a vacuum cleaner bag. Great idea, I must say!
