Henri Huet , Born of French farther and Vietnamese Mother . Henri joined the French Navy and learned photography with them . He ended up a combat photographer covering the French Vietnamese conflict Known as the Indo China war  . After the war Henri was discharged from the French Navy , but remained in South Vietnam as a civilian photographer , working for the U.S and French Governments . During the U.S involvement , he worked for both U.P.I and A.P . In February 1971 , Henri and some other Journalists including Larry Burrows , joined the OP commander who was in charge of the invasion from South Vietnam into Laos , to take a look at the battle front . The Vietnamese piloted Huey , got lost and flew over one of the most heavily defended parts of the Ho Chi Minh trail , and was shot down . There were no known survivors . Henri Was only forty two years old .
     
      For My take on Henri , I scratch made the leather camera bag from an old leather wallet . The leather was glued to a card box , and I added the Pockets and straps , and the brass button catch . The wire in front pocket is a shutter release for the cameras , note book pencil and C-rat Toilet tissue placed in the second pocket also made from scratch . The Cameras are G.I joe re -worked , along with the 21st century toys webbing , and DML NAM pouches .

Wonderful group emerging. 
I was just about to ask what sort of reference material you worked from.

They just keep getting better! I think Henri is now my top fave among your impressively detailed and historically-based figures!
