Mulberry Harbour

If the raid on Dieppe in August 1942 served no other useful purpose, it demonstrated that the Germans were not going to give up a port to the coming invasion.  The Allies would have to bring a port of their own if they were to be able to keep the invasion armies supplied.  In a feat of foresight, Winston Churchill had sent a memo to Lord Louis Mountbatten, then Chief of Combined Operations, in May 1942 ordering work on such a harbour.  In the note he famously stated, “They must float up and down with the tide. The anchor problem must be mastered.... Let me have the best solution worked out.  Don’t argue the matter.  The difficulties will argue for themselves.” 

Here is your opportunity to build  a ortion of the original harbour in 1/76 scale.
