Hi all , this is my NVA Sniper . He maybe due some changes in the future , but is ready for action as he stands . I managed to find another nice sculpt I am very pleased with , and he has a new to me Russian made Mosin Nagant rifle with scope . You may well have seen in the movies , the NVA and Vietcong using AK47`s in Sniper scenes , though perhaps not impossible , serious well trained snipers would of used rifles mainly the Soviet Mosin Nagant , accurate up to 600yrds plus . Snipers could hold up lots of movement from U.S troops single handed , often wounding a man in the open , and picking off would be rescuers and or medics . Even vehicles such as tanks , by aiming at crewman , tanks tended to stop and try blasting the area in front , even once the crew buttoned down the hatches , the communist Snipers would aim at the drivers scopes , in effect blinding the tank . A good sniper in your area was bad for moral ....that went for both sides .

Nice work Chip! He looks really good. Kind of menacing in a way! I think you would need a heavy air strike with lots of napalm to flush this guy out!

The base of this bash is 21st Century Toys set right?

Thanks Sarah , yes the bases of most my Vietcong and NVA are from the old 21st century sets . I like the 21st sets , I like tweaking the accessories , with a bit of patients you can get a good look from them .

Thanks for all the other kind comments . Wink
