Omaha Beach: Operation Overload
Omaha Beach, June 6 1944: Execution of Operation Overload.
About this creation
June 6, 1944 was the monumental day that the combined forces of the Allies (including French, English, and American men) stormed the coast (beaches Gold, Omaha, Juno, Utah, and Sword) of Normandy in hopes of freeing the population from Nazi oppression in World War II.

Months ago, I had to complete a project for my history class on something that happened during US history. I decided to go with D-Day because I knew nothing about it. For my teaching model, I created a diorama of a condensed scene of what happened on Omaha Beach. Because I couldn't bring anything too big into school, I had to pack the scene into an unrealistic amount of space. Nevertheless, enjoy the diorama.


















I waited so long to post this is because I wanted to take the pictures with my not-yet-bought new camera, which I now have and is a Canon Powershot G12.

I have lots of creations I built while waiting, and those'll be up pretty soon.
Thanks for checking this out.

Stellar MOC! I believe it was operation overlord, not overload.

This is really cool! It was sad day, and the blood shows that. Brilliant representation of the whole thing, though!

This is great but quite disturbing at the same time. I agree there is a little to much blood around the place but that takes nothing away from your excellent attempt to portray a sad historic moment with Lego. The G12 is a great camera (good choice), I have a G9 and I love it. I was going to replace it with a G12 but I saved up and got myself a nice Digital SLR (50D) which I love even more ;-) I really like your creations, keep it up!

This looks really awesome! I like the beach, but the water could have a bit more.. water and a little bit less blood. The battle was indeed bloody, but there's a little bit too much blood in your moc. But aside from that, it looks fantastic, I'm interested in what your grade will be!

This is one impressive MOC Alex! You did an excellent job portraying the horrors of war. And the build is top notch! Epic bunker. It's good to see you posting again. Have fun with that new camera!

Thats one bloody moc. The Omaha beach was a real nightmare. (Hate to be the partypooper but... I think the operation was named "overlord".) Anyway great moc.

Quoting Will Anderson Amazing!!! Did you get some of the ideas from Saving Private Ryan?
I watched Saving Private Ryan for the first time as part of my research, and it helped me get a good idea of what the battle was like. So yes, I suppose I did get some ideas from the movie.

Amazing!!! Did you get some of the ideas from Saving Private Ryan? It just looks amazing! Could you look at mine and tell me ways to improve? I'm trying to get as much advice as possible.

Excellent diorama! You may need to bricklink some guns though; I don't think WWII soldiers would be able to find more ammo for those blasters. ;)

Very good, Alex. I do not understand why you have all of that red, and then the brown, that's beyond my mind to understand. Great German Bunker!

Great piece of work here, Dude! Although not a huge set, getting down to the soldier's eye level, and the depth of field give the feeling of a much larger scale diorama. It looks like it's right out of Saving Private Ryan. I'm glad you chose to depict the violent reality of the scene like the movie did. That's the difference between art and some plastic toy soldiers. Well done, and I hope you got a good grade!

Excellent, even though underscaled, recreation of my favourite WWII battle. My school would flip if that was brought in, the little guns and gore are what would set them off. >Eric

During the invasion the waters were muddied by blood.

Good job on the unorthodox water colour, but you may want to change those blocker things from tiles to bricks.

A brilliant MOC depicting one of the darkest moments in modern history. A really excellent build - so many of the war builders on MOCpages could learn from this. 5 stars

This was definitely worth the wait! I especially like the water; most people would go the "censored" route and use blue, but you went for the more realistic approach of what really happened at "Bloody Omah". All around, it's a fabulous dio! It's great to see you posting again too!

I must say, I have doubles feelings with this moc. It's turning my stomac around... I think because the impressive quality of the build some very dark era in mankind is shown. Extremely good build.

The long-awaited scene emerges! I like the way you did the water, and I was actually thinking as I looked at this that the photos looked nicer than usual. My suspicions were confirmed when you said you got a new camera. Nice work!
