    The buttpack probably isn't ACE, but the presentation on this figure is beautiful. The accuracy is a bit questionable (only two of those reference photos are SEALs - the top is SOG and the bottom LRRPs). Still, great work on him, especially the dio

    Re: "History Comes Alive" - New Vietnam Contest

    Chuck Mawhinney
    United States Marine Scout Sniper
    5th Marine Regiment 1967-1970
    Weapon - US M40 Based on Remington 700

    Mawhinney holds the record for most confirmed kills for a USMC sniper. Having recorded 103 confirmed and 216 probables during 16 months action.
    Mawhinney told no one about his service- not even his wife. His accomplishments were unknown, until in 1991 fellow marine Joseph Ward published a book, Dear Mom: A Snipers Vietnam. In it Ward credited Mawhinney with 101 kills bringing him into the spotlight.
    A scout sniper team worked independently alongside companies providing protection and intelligence. They were greatly feared by the enemy and large bounties wre placed on their heads. On one occasion Valentines day 1969 Mawhinney killed 16 with 16 straight shots.
    This is a homage to the honor and integrity of this great soldier.

    That's it - game over. Still, it saves me having to put a figure together!

    Just a reminder, the contest is still open until April 30. No SOG or NVA yet, so the special prizes may go unclaimed.

    Can an entry have both US and NVA soldiers? I'm sorry if it's to late to be asking that

    Awesome!
    As for the NVA or SOG bashes - the NVA or SOG needs to be the focus of the piece to be eligible for the RPD, silenced Grease Gun, or Death Machine.

    Hill 875 - Initial Assault
    I didn't get to do everything I wanted with this, it was supposed to be an entirely indoor diorama that took up an entire table, but I moved to a new apartment while working on this and it had to take the back seat for a bit. Luckily I had finished the bunker before the move and was able to get outdoor pictures.

    My entry is based on the first assault of Hill 875. I used the documentary "Combat Zone - Hill 875" and pictures for reference. I took a few liberties with the bunkers (going off few pictures and descriptions in the documentary) and the NVA, not many pictures of either of these things are available on the internet. I decided to go with the initial assault since it wouldn't require as many fallen trees and the area could still be full of vegetation.

    Bunker reference



    American reference

    My entry - Thread with more pictures including full figure pictures of the Americans and the NVA
    Hill 875 - Initial Assault - Vietnam Contest Entry

    I do have a lot of NVA going on in this but I'm deciding to enter the American themed part of the contest
