1st Cav LZ Diorama to Honor Another Local Boy

Recommended Posts

I am working on 1/35 dioramas to honor local men who were killed in action from the Revolutionary War to Afghanistan. This latest represents 1st Lt. Walter "Skip" Daley of Brewster, MA. He was posthumously awarded the Silver Star for his actions on 1 February 1967 with the 12th Cavalry, 1st Cavalry Division in Vietnam.

Cool. I like this diorama because it reminds me of the one I made, but I put 'Marines' markings on it, forgetting that the Marines used the CH-34, then the CH-46 and CH-53 in 'Nam, to transport troops, they used the "Slick" mostly for medevacs and as gunships. This looks like Dragon's UH-1D Huey which is perfect for 1/35 scale dioramas. I also like the groundwork. Thanks for honoring the fallen.

This is one pic of my diorama. I'll probably change the markings on my chopper.
