Miniart 1:35 - US 101st Airborne Division (Normandy 1944) - Plastic Figure Model Kit #35089

The 101st Airborne Division nicknamed the "Screaming Eagles" is a light infantry division of the US Army specialised in air attacks. During WWII the Division took part in several allied military operations including the D-Day landings, Operation Market Garden and the Battle of the Bulge.

The initial part of Operation Overlord began on the night of June 6, 1944 with the parachute landings of the 101st Airborne Division in Normandy, known as Mission Albany. Almost 7,000 US paratroopers descended in the northwest of France, however, low visibility, bad weather conditions and German ground fire affected the landing accuracy. The troops were badly scattered over the area, so most of the mission objectives were not attained.

This kit represents three German soldiers captured by two American paratroopers from the 101st Airborne Division.

The kit contains 57 parts.
Includes parts for five figures.
Box: 260mm x 162mm x 35mm
