Hello everyone! Below is my latest diorama depicting Operation Frequent Wind, 30 April 1975, titled "Time To Go." A USMC CH-53D of HMH-463 prepares to evacuate Vietnamese civilians and US Embassy Staff from Saigon. I used a 1985, warped, Revell CH-53D, 1980s Microscale Decals for HMH-463, Airfix electric motor for the main rotor, Jin Long micro motor for the tail rotor, operating navigation lights, MP3 player with radio calls and rotor sound effects from a real CH-53, 1/48 crew members from Hasegawa, and 1/48 scale civilians from a Chinese company. I added an Armorcast .50 machine gun and Eduard photo-etch cockpit. I took Silver in the Aircraft Diorama category at last Saturday's IPMS Region 5 contest in Madison, Wisconsin. Hope you enjoy! First are videos of the diorama in action: Click on the link, one has radio calls, the other rotor sound effects https://photos.google.com/share/AF1QipMqAFuVN_SFURZaZkHq065fvwv19riEG6gGAu9eMU5Kwk6YblZgay0qAarL4qa_Qg/photo/AF1QipPnMrPUrQsoUxECKJcJq8B_mAMnqfO9-lev3IQ6?key=ZlpwRXdTeWRMcG9HUUVzcHBzeXFNZFZwajl4UW93 https://photos.google.com/share/AF1QipMqAFuVN_SFURZaZkHq065fvwv19riEG6gGAu9eMU5Kwk6YblZgay0qAarL4qa_Qg/photo/AF1QipO15GGWPKy9vK9krfgvi8dvansoUPTyGspfAXFK?key=ZlpwRXdTeWRMcG9HUUVzcHBzeXFNZFZwajl4UW93 How the project began...
