Sorry Thomas no photos as yet. Some of the VC are partially painted more than a month ago but thats it. As for the story I can tell you a bit more.
Its based on a true story how a fresh green beret had just joined one of the recon teams and on his first outing saw his LT killed and all the Nungs running off. He was left alone and had to hide in a piece of jungle the size of 2 football fields overnite while the alerted VC closed in slowly from both sides.

In short he was rescued after many attempts and basically survived by keeping his cool.

May God bless your son, Sil.

But Sil, you must resist the temptation of ... Hornets, Eagles, Falcons etc. somewhere in Ampang.

Glad to know your son is doing well. Welcome back!

Aw man, im tight up with island hoppings and surf sessions....shoots and recording.

currently im in the midst of collecting and gathering raw materials for my 'stucked' ardennes offensive dio.
things are okay but some of my 251 haltrack parts are missing. maybe ive spend to much time on the beach than concertrating on the model.

bits by bits, i hope that evrything wll be inplace soon,

peace...

man.. the haze is getting worse, can even smell the 'asap' in my air-cond office. eyes and throat getting dry too.... this is just terrible.

eh, think the govt will announce the emergency aa? better la, we all can go home and stay indoors.

to our fellow modellers up north in penang and kedah, i guess you're not affected much... you guys are lucky.

p/s: sorry for the non-modelling related topic.. can't help it

footnote: at 5.30pm my boss announced that the office will be closed tomorrow (friday) due to the haze.

As of yesterday, the air quality (and visibility) has eroded. The API is still in the 100-200 range. The visibility is down to 600m in some areas. Need to stay indoors...might probably gets worse in 24-48 hours.

Anyway...might not be aproblem for me to 'enjoy' the outdoors...the mask used for spray painting and sanding would be handy!!
