    Re: Buffalo Rangers! "Let Valor not Fail!"

    Thanks amigos for the warm reception to my little diorama. Well i based this on several accounts in the 2nd Rangers BOOK i read there, posted, having awkward fast and HARD landings with their FOURTH POINT of CONTACT, i'm sure you're familiar with the terminology? The accounts state that perhaps large holes (bullets?) on the descending canopies might have attributed to faster descends and thus harder landings. In the book, there are 2 accounts of buffalo rangers having rough landings. The Ranger on the ground should be either Ranger Herc Dias who actually lost his helmet on the jump or Ranger Eugene Coleman who was actually knocked out upon hitting the ground, Both Rangers are still alive today.
    So i very much thought that the sculpt i used lended itself well for this particular vignette of mine. And i suppose, although awkward hard landings are rare these days (or not, i don't know lol) it did happen in the infancy of Airborne warfare back then as stated above...but then again you are the experienced para there and i will leave it at what i have read. hope the answer here is to your satisfaction friends.

    Oh wow! Miguel, you've turned out some extraordinary work in the past, but this is superb! I have no doubt that you'll be nominated for KotM for this!

    Hehehe something funny but our Lizardking's was on tv last night: after the Italian song festival of Sanremo there is a satirical press room with a funny musician posing as a tv journalist and reading the morrow papers (mostly fakes!), and guess what? Here there was the Military Modeler cover with our friend's work while the comment was it portrays a singer had not entered the competition and lamenting to his brother (or something...)! ^_^
    Cheers
