Empress Nam stuff all done!! Pg2
« on: May 08, 2021, 07:54:38 AM »
Finally getting around to this USMC commission, just a WIP at the moment, got another 9 to do, haven’t painted anything for years in a combat uniform! So many shades of green! The Mitchell camo was easier than I thought it would be

A few more wips, will be basing all at the end, not sure whether to base for Hue or jungle? On another note, how much equipment does the radio operator carry?!? Smoke grenades galore!

It was not unusual for the RTO to have the LTs or the old man's smoke grenades hangin' on the canvas strap that held the radio to its frame.  We did it in ROTC and the National Guard in the early 80s... 

Nice brushwork, by the way... :)

Which it totally logical is the LT's is asking for support, artillery, air, helo, etc then grabs a smoke marker to mark the position. Original pictures show them carrying lots.

Nice painting job.  ;)
