Excellent photos.
Love the new figures.
Yes!

Are the buildings off the shelf, bespoke or a future range?

Are the fences Renedra?

The fences are Empress.

One of the buildings is  sarissa but heavily changed. The rest are scratch built. I had planned to do a range in resin for French Indo China but never did. They would be in resin not MDF though.

Yes plans for Chopper crews. Probably when we get to Air Cav.

Yes, that would make sense to include the helo crew in the air cav releases.

Thanks for the reply.

Chopper crew would be fantastic!
But do we get actual choppers as well or do we need to source them independently? 1/48 scale models?

good kit, I have 3 of them.
"Peace" is that brief, glorious moment in history when everybody stands around reloading.

Is that really trying to side lift a Mercury capsule?

No, it’s trying to drown Gus Grissom.  :)

H-34s were indeed what they used for recovering the Mercury capsules. The capsule was at the absolute limit of lift capacity, so when Grissom’s capsule started filling with water it all nearly ended in tears.

I agree that separate heads would be an advantage and allow you to "customise" the figures

Hear hear  :D

As bare headed alternatives the Spanish Civil War Range has some pretty good ones.
A bit hippy but that’s 1968 for ya!
