A Vietnam Diorama By Brian Buskell




This great little vignette has been put together by one of the lads at the club, Brian Buskell, for the 2nd Battalion Royal Australian  Regiment (RAR) Historical Collection. The fantastic piece represents one of Bravo Company 2 RAR's rifle platoons setting up and ambush somewhere in Vietnam 1968. Brain has done an amazing job creating the diorama, with all the terrain scratch built and the figures  painted by Brian and Terry Moran but supplied from Eureka Miniatures.


The figures have been placed down to represent the three killer groups of the ambush (left, right and the main killer groups), plus flank and rear protection. It looks like the ambush was just about set when a couple of locals started to come along the track....lets hope they don't spring the ambush too early.
