I've had the SOTW Korean War M20 super bazooka for several years now; and I haven't had an idea of how to best use it. I've always been fascinated by the Rhodesian bush war, and seeing that the M20 was used to some extent gave me an idea.

It appears that the Rhodesian Light Infantry and SAS were the primary users of the weapon, but I thought that my Selous Scout could put it to good use.

Basic kit:

The M20 was a very effective weapon.

Damn! I love this! Excellent work! That Rhodesian Camo, that's from the 21st Century Toys Mercenary figure right? That was like, the holy grail when my brothers and I were little. Cool camo that wasn't US woodland, a sneering head sculpt and an AK47..

Thanks for the kind words! The 21st camo was also used on the “Auz and Taz” set. I have a pair of Rhodesians, here they are:

The central photo in particular of your man in the foxhole could quite literally pass for a full-scale reality shot.
Amazing work. Well done!  cheers cheers cheers

Thank you for the kind words! The pics were taken at our old house; and the rabbit burrows were good stand-ins for 1:6 foxholes. Here’s my Indochina War French foreign legion outpost:

Will you be introducing rabbits to the new place, then? To help with your 1/6-scale landscaping needs?
