    No dimensions, but I assume this is what you mean for the British?

    Hi Seb,

    As you live in Normandy, can't you go to a cemetery and measure the grave stones? That seems like the easiest solution to me........?

    Indeed Adrian!Even if i'm 130 km away from the site ,this could be a great idea,indeed!
    But what i was looking for,since this work is going to be realised on a milling machine and a laser cutting machine,was a kind of scanned blueprint,or even better,an autocad file,in order for me to vectorize it...A bit weird but it's all cristal clear for me,héhéhéhé....
    In fact,all this to create a big scale diorama with an example of both British and US graves ,like forgotten ,wheathered by rain and dust,with sort of ivy invading it,plus trashes spread around the grave,all this in order to focus on the forgotten heroes here in France,that our modern consumer life tend to erase.A kind of tribute my friends ,be sure of that..
