Thanks Rick, hadn't had anything to attack with brushes for a bit , so got quite stuck into these.
Had a go at the NVA mortar at the same time (with added plastic tree thing).

Cheers Carlos, always appreciated. Agreed, a 60mm would be a good addition.

The corpsman figures are rather good, every HQ section should have some. The .50 is a really nice model, there have been a few that came on vehicles, but nice to get a tripod.
The night sight (separate piece) I may re-purpose, as it wouldn't look out of place on a Brit SLR.

Heck, It wouldn't look out of place on an M16.  Those starlight scopes we trained on at basic training were big...

They were and were fucking heavy to boot. I remember dire warnings about breaking one or looking directly at things like vehicle headlights.

Most likely a bit of a fluke, put a wash of dirty water around the top part of the bottle, to separate the fingers from the bottle (bottle painted Vallejo 'White Grey').
The wire I used for the IV tube could have done with being a narrower guage, but all I had to hand. Was going to use fishing line, but it wouldn't hold the twist, kept wanting to straighten out.
