This reminds me why I fell in love with model building. Brings back old feelings… Amazing diorama.
THAT IS PRETTY AMAZING!!!
Unfortunately, the title doesn’t do it any justice. Should be titled ‘Cluster F##k!’ …. But then again, this is a family show.
That’s a splendid dio you’ve put together Evgeny! The honeycomb core of the main rotor blade was the first thing that caught my attention, I don’t recall seeing an M88 used in a Nam dio and it’s nice to see one in use. I see many tireless hours just in the ground cover and vegitation alone, being a Nam nut myself I can appreciate your clever effort to incorporate the PT76 into the scene, I don’t know that I get the VC on the dugout in such an open and close proximity but I understand the limited space factor of any diorama build. All in all nice job, that Roden M37B is a sweet little truck albeit a bit figidty on the assembly. Would love to see more of your work that steers away from the typical Hollywood Nam cliche’.
A lot of nice work, and the builder did his homework on vehicles, uniforms, weapons, etc… even got the color of the dirt right. Like the writer before me, I do question the proximity of the VC/NVA troops to a recovery operation. I participated in several missions to retrieve downed choppers or disabled/mired vehicles in Vietnam, and the first order of business was to establish perimeter security. We all wouldn’t be milling around on the road without eyes in the bush surrounding the site. Even the women in the sampan would not be allowed to approach. Again, I want to be clear, the model, figure and scenery work in this diorama are excellent, I just question the inclusion of the NVA.

Excellent work! Being an aviator, I also noticed the honeycomb in the blade. Nice touch indeed!
