ArtyScout Posted April 20 Share #1 Posted April 20 On page 13 of this forum, you'll find my first diorama post: LZ-Landing Zone. Well I've decided to redo that diorama and rename it above. The majority of the old figures are staying, just repositioned and tweaked and I'm adding 7 new figures. Also the UH-1D Huey will be repainted from USMC to US Army. For one thing I found out that the Corps used UH-34 choppers before phasing them out with CH-46 Sea Knights and CH-53 Sea Stallions. Second the decals on the Huey silvered because I forgot to gloss coat the decal areas, and there were other discrepancies that needed to be fixed. I believe with the support and knowledge that I've picked up in this forum and at World Militaria, I'll be able to pull it off. The good news is I won't have to make room for a 'new' diorama. LOL. So here are some pics of the seven new figures prior to priming that I'll be adding to the old diorama plus a reminder of the old diorama. The figures are from Bravo6 and Master Box. As you can see the M60 front sight had to be "redone" on the Bravo6 kit. It was quite flimsy and it broke off with just a slight touch. I tried my best to kitbash another one, I also used PE bipods on the M60 instead of the resin ones and also for the grenade pull rings. So wish me luck, and as always all comments and critiques are greatly appreciated. Semper Fi. Mann Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
