The church in the Norman town of Ste. Mere Eglise is perhaps the most famous church of the Second World War. It gained fame when a company of the 82nd Airborne Division dropped into the town by mistake on D-Day. One of the troopers ended up hanging in his parachute from the bell tower. The church saw more action the following morning as the battle swirled around the town. The church is a large stone structure very typical of many French churches. Now you can add a highly detailed model of this famous structure to your game table! The kit is compatable with all of the common 'micro-scales' (6mm, 1/300, 1/285). In addition to the church, the kit comes with 17 other town buildings and a number of garden walls allowing you to build a whole village. Each building, including the church, lifts off to reveal a "destroyed" version of the same building underneath!
