Few old snaps of my Little Bird " Miss Clawd " crew , assigned to the Air Cav .  Don`t think I`ll be doing much to these any time soon , but was chatting about Heli's yesterday in the chat room so dug them out . In Vietnam there was normally just the two crew in a little bird , a pilot and a Door Gunner , guessing it would of been the same in Huey`s , but the Door gunner`s M.60 was attached to a kind of short bunji cord , which allowed him to lean out and not fall out when looking or gunning for the Vietcong ect . As well as his M.60 , door gunners often had a box of grenades , or some hung on cord in the back of the Heli , he could simply drop these on the enemy , handy if they hid in a hole or similar . Pilots often carried private purchased fancy pistols in western style belts and holsters , a lot of pilots placed the holstered pistols between there legs during " hot " situations , to give a bit of protection to those private important bits .  Very Happy

Another amazingly detailed group of soldiers! Those guys must have been in excellent physical condition to lug those ammunition belts around.

Nice chopper model. Is that still part of your collection?
