    Hello all
    I am preparing a squad of Legionnaires in Indochina (1952/1953), for a diorama in nature this summer. I had a sniper rifle grenades (in French: Lance grenade)
    For this, I changed MAS36 made by my friend Weylen (Weylen's Workshop) and I made a French rifle grenade, model 48.

    The result















    Color

    Excellent Legionnaire!! Cannot wait to see the full squad diorama. That might be just the inspiration I need to finish up my 2e BEP MG team!

    Really nice!!! I have just bought loads of bits in as I am also making a squad of Legionnaires from this period...each time I decide on a bash and diorama to make, someone else beats me to it! lol

    The more the merrier! Is the rifle the one you can buy from Fanasix?

    Really nice figure

    But accomplishments are nothing extraordinary, it can be done by everyone and I hope many people will do better and mass. Maybe one day a manufacturer will look at the French army during the war in Indochina and the manufacturer will sell 47/52 uniforms and equipment to go with ..

    The gun is not the model FANASIX is the model of Fabulous Weylen
