Though i donâ€™t want to hurt anybody, I have to say itâ€™s been 25 years i didnâ€™t see a diorama about the Vietnam war that I actually liked.
All the usual clichÃ©s are shown in dioramas, but all the ones I saw miss their point, the most important I think, the *whole spirit*.
Ah, if I say â€œ25 yearsâ€, itâ€™s because I saw one great one once on a French mag. Technically it was just okay, it showed a couple of M 113s, big puddles and a couple of yanks in one cornerwith Coke bottles. Why did I liked it? Because of the whole color scheme whichwas very orange-red and those big out of balance puddles. I have been reading countless stuff on Vietnam War when I was younger, all of them tell about thered dust and the big puddles, but what I see in dioramas is well, some anonymous bits of jungle and no light.
Back to the diorama. More cutting on the way, here all thepieces cut, and me starting to do some sort of canopy out of various thickness bits.
ah, did anybody found what plane I am using? Hint: half of all the number built ended up in flames, one of the great success of the Eisenhowerâ€™s Military Industrial Complex I suppose.
