This is the first of, hopefully, many 1/72 projects. The inspiration came when I saw Udo Spreng's fantastic 1/72 display at the Herzog von Bayern competition in 2017.

This, my first earnest 1/72 project, was used for testing many different things, including my first attempt to use water effects.

There is no big story behind the scene, it simply depicts a US Marine Corps soldier stalking/running (you choose) through a rather sparsely grown Vietnamese rice paddy...

Thanks for watching and best,

    Being an American it’s got a strong sense of emotion for me and I’m sure everyone else viewing it and this is simply because its painted so well!!! I live this .

    Thanks, guys.

    @ John: yes. For me, Vietnam is a particularly interesting topic, exactly because it continues to evict such a powerful imagery and emotional reactions, even four decades after the hostilities ended.
