    -1968- 1/6 scale M16 Comic Book Maintenance Manual

    Since i had seen some time ago the Original Maintenance Manual of the M16 in Comic style i wanted to do it in 1/6 scale for my Vietnam Figures. It was really fun to do and i am happy with the result for the first time.

    Now have fun with the Comic ;-):

    Wow, this is incredibly cool. I didn't know anything about it until I just looked it up. How cool is it that Will Eisner did it?!

    If anyone else was interested or didn't already know all about it, I found this article fascinating:

    The U.S. Army Had an M-16 Comic Book – War Is Boring

    It's such a great piece of history to bring in to 1/6 scale. Very awesome.

    Very cool, indeed! My brother brought me one when he came home on leave from the Army back then. Still have it, too! Thanks for the miniature memory!

    THX a lot and i am happy you like it. I will make more Maintenance books if found good artworks. The M60 book is on my wish/to do list too ;-). I need first the Original book or scans/pictures of it to realize the project.
