The Model is 1/72nd scale to fit in with the rest of my Vietnam collection. It could equally be used for any Pacific WW2 game.
It does have a covered area with a slit for a machinegun A place at least dry in the storms and wet season. It Is of course hastily erected and in the next few days sandbags will e placed on the roof to protect from mortars. But for a few days this will suffice. Not perfect by any stretch of imagination but in country not to shabby.
It was a huge amount of fun to paint and drape with foliage and will fit my Vietnam collection very well indeed. As with all my bonus rounds it is done to play its part on the table and not as a static display. Nothing wrong with display pieces at all but I am a wargamer so I will get the most enjoyment playing with this and not looking at it in a glass case.
As a final thought.
Television brought the brutality of war into the comfort of the living room. Vietnam was lost in the living rooms of America - not on the battlefields of Vietnam. Marshall McLuhan
So I guess it was lost in the homes of civilians.
Just My 5.56mm of input.
