I was rather inspired by RealSarahdactyl`s  recent 21st century post of the SAS dude . So dug some old pics of mine out of one of 21st`s NAM Navy SEALS . I think he is pretty much original , though I have replaced the elastic straps with proper webbing .  " Sorry Bout that " a phrase made popular from the Vietnam war by certain movies , I thought rather suited the first picture . I think those Vietcong should of done a runner .

You may see a resemblance to Blain from Predator , though he used a mini gun and not an M.60 .

Brutal combat scene... or aftermath. Nicely modeled.

Great little dio. there, with suitable posing of the figures to tell the story!
I too love that bamboo hut!
What did you make the frame out of?

I bet they will think twice before lacing the trail with punji sticks next time! Nice work on the posing and the hut!

Thanks all glad you enjoyed it .

The frame Barry was made from Gardening cane ...which I think is Bamboo . The Hooch needs some small repairs now , not helped by the Cat who likes to sleep in it . Very Happy

Great stuff Chip!

I'm also interested in how you made the hut.

I have a couple of 21st Century, and that is a lot better figure than what I have.

As far as 21st, I mainly have the 21st villain figures. As adversaries for my modern Joes.

21st Century made great stuff.

Thanks for further comments , most kind .

The Hooch was made from gardening cane , ( Bamboo ) used to make a frame . I then cut and glued each individual reed to the sides and the roof . The roof has a hessian underlay , and was probably the hardest part to make . I have stuff to make two or three more , will try and find some more pics of this one done in stages I know I have some someplace . Very Happy

I for one would like to see those photos. 
Your wonderful hut has re-inspired me to make a 1/6 scale tiki bar!

How is the full size version coming along? Last you mentioned, it was nearly complete!

Now Dave, you know full well that a true tiki bar is NEVER finished!
Mine however is certainly "up-&-running" as they say.

Not forgetting a shrunken head or two?
Actually my bar only has one at present, but I'm always out looking for the raw material......  Twisted Evil Twisted Evil Twisted Evil
