This is a figure with a head swap. The figure is a regular NVA RPG gunner . I changed the head against a head with a traditional hat to make him look more like a VC. The head and the figure are from Empress.



on the left is the original figure.

Like the hat trick.  :D

Nice head transplant.  But IMO, either work for VC.  Well done, in any event!

Thanks gents!

Now for something different. I got a 3D file of the tank through a kickstarter ( 3D printable US Vehicles of the Vietnam War: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/bm3d/3d-printable-us-vehicles-of-the-vietnam-war-for-wargames ). This was printed on my Anycubic photon resin printer and i must say the files are really worth every penny I paid!



The tank comander figure is by Empress. Many more pictures at: https://wargamesgazette.com/2021/06/16/the-start-of-a-m551-armored-reconnaissance-vehicle/

Great model.
Was not happy when it came in 1/56 and not in 1/50 or 1/48.
Also would like to see a M-41 and M-42.
Oh, well.

@Marine0846

I have the same files from the kick starter and I printed them at 1/50 scale so now. They are easy to rescale when you have a 3D printer.

The model you see in the picture is rescaled to 1/50 too.  Forgot to mention.

That looks great.

How tech savy does one need to be in order to operate a Anycubic photon printer? I am seriously considering getting one. But I am a bit afraid that it might end up in a lot of tears, cusswords and gnashing of teeth.

First of all there is a learning curve envolved. But it is really no problem. You ave to learn to work with the prgramms you need to get the stl file into a file readable by the photon. These programs are called slicers. You get thenm from Anycubic for free or from third parties.
so all in all you don#t have to be a tech neerd. I never regretted getting a printer.

@Dr Zombie,

I made notes about my learning to use an Anycubic Photon. These will feature in a book one day.
If you (or anybody else) want to have a preview copy of the 3d Print section, just PM me with your email address.

Best Regards

Mick

After a longer break in my painting efforts, work came in between, here is another VC:



Here is another VC soldier with the traditional vietnamese Non La headgear. The head is from Empress as is the body of the figure.
