Operation Tractable

Conclusion
This was a long but enjoyable project. I had great fun and learned a lot delving into the details of the Canadian 3rd Infantry Division and 2nd Armoured Brigade and the battles they fought.

As always, I owe thanks to my friends and fellow model builders in the Central South Carolina AMPS Chapter and the Mid-Carolina IPMS Chapter. I'm sure you guys must get tired of seeing the same model meeting after meeting, but you're always patient and polite about it! I'd also like to thank the many folks here on Armorama who freely gave me their opinions and thoughts as I posted this project over in the build blogs.

Finally, though, the real thanks are due to those brave guys who gave it their all on the beaches of Normandy and across the fields of Northwest Europe.

Cos Cheum Nach Gabh Tilleadh! Indeed!
