First armour attack by the NVA on US led forces.

The Attack on the U.S. Special Forces Camp at Lang Vei, manned by Detachment A-101 of the 5th Special Forces Group and indigenous Civilian Irregular Defense Group (CIDG) forces. On 6 February 1968 , the 24th Regiment, again supported by the 198th Tank Battalion, launched their assault on Lang Vei. Despite air and artillery support, the U.S.-led forces conceded ground and the PAVN quickly dominated their positions. By the early hours of 7 February the command bunker was the only position still held by Allied forces. To rescue the American survivors inside the Lang Vei Camp, a counterattack was mounted, but the Laotian soldiers who formed the bulk of the attack formation refused to fight the PAVN. Later on, U.S. Special Forces personnel were able to escape from the camp, and were rescued by a U.S. Marine task force from Khe Sanh Combat Base.

Going to create this scene with some artistic licence ,


PT-76 tank is from Trumpeter with some added scratch detail ,
Concrete Tower is made from Plaster (you know ho i do this )
Barrels are resin copies that i have made ,
Blue foam wil be cover with Apoxie Sculpt sandbags .

Attachment not found


tarpaulin from Apoxie sculpt, straps are thin plastic, buckles are PE.
,
That's it for now .

Both sides of the PT & 76 have their track,
He's just about to get over it.
tracks still needs to be glued the road wheels and base ........... a sandbag here and there to blend it all in .

Yes i casting my own drums,
i remodeled the miniart allied drum set, into ones with cut open tops and filled with soil ones save alot of money and work.


And Greenstuf primer sprays real nice with a bit of Vallejo retarder mixed in .

Thank you. I like the Tamiya fuel drums that include dented drums but always lots of filling and sanding. I should try casting some also.
Primer I switched from Vallejo to Mig Ammo One Shot which I understand is rebranded Badger Stynelrez. I really like it but once I had been using the bottle a few months it started clogging the airbrush quite frequently. Best when fresh. I brought some of this Greenstuff World primer to try. I found it a bit thick to spray. I will try adding some retarder. I have Vallejo Airbrush Flow Improver, I will add some next time.

I always thought TAMIYA made only the German type Barrel but i see they also have an US set


Ps
I did thin down also the Greenstuff World primer with lifecolor thinner.
