1/35 scale Guadalcanal Ambush

Recommended Posts

I was reading "Helmet for my Pillow"  by Robert Leckie.  In the book he mentions US Marines encountering the saltwater crocodiles in the creeks, inlets and streams during the campaign on Guadalcanal in 1942.  That book inspired this little vignette.

The figures are bashed together from the parts box.  They are a mix of resin and plastic, Warriors, Airfix, DML, and Hornet heads.  The crocodile is from the old Tamiya dinosaur set.  The "crocodile" might actually be an alligator, but for this project, it works as a crocodile.    The water is made of cut up thin clear plastic pieces and then covered and the waves built up with Liquitex clear modeling paste.  The bamboo is made by JT scenics.
 

Anyway, thank for looking.

Wow! What a brilliant idea! You really don't see any dios of troops interacting with animals, unless they are farm animals. This is a brilliant idea! Execution of it is phenomenal as well!
