  1. Obviously a lot of thought and creativity go into these dioramas...very nice work.

  2. very nice - love the detailed landscape - looks real!

  3. Tom, marvelous details throughout, you have to really study individual parts of it. Obviously the troops are in contact, and there's a lot going on, all at once. Great posing and animating of the figures, to show this. Individual Vignettes that could stand on their own,as well as part of the whole.

    One of the best comments about the RVN I ever heard was by a Sgt. squad leader who had just rotated home. He remarked that he wouldn't be watching the sun come up over hills that scared him, anymore.

    Tom, my sincere admiration for your considerable skills. Don't sweat the airplanes, they'll come.
