1/35 Scale GIs and Moroccan Goumiers in Italy


Recommended Posts

Staying with the Italian campaign, this is another small vignette. Two 3rd Division GIs meet a group of Moroccan Goumiers on one of the mountain trails in Italy.

 

The Moroccans are from the old 1970s Heller kit. The GIs are kit bashed together from the parts box. The GI figures are a mix of DML, Tamiya, Resin, and Hornet heads.

 

Here are some photos. Thanks for looking

Another masterpiece Dennis. This vignette just flows. The groundwork is excellent, the uniforms and the supplies on the donkey are spot on.

The way you describe the kitbashing of the US soldiers it would seem like you have a Frankenstein's version of body parts box. I know because I have the same thing.

I do have one question: What is the donkey's name? :rolleyes:

 

Semper Fi.

Another great one! I do like the paint job on those Moroccan cloaks.

Well done !!
