Hi Greg,

The Chosin one is A for the same reasons Scottie has explained. I've seen the Def.Model figs up close...they're really good.

I was surprised when Hyun Jin Kim gave me a few figures compliments of Douglas Lee when they were in Penang.

An excellent touch. I don't think they make the big ones anymore. I haven't seen them in decades. The minis are still available though.

Looking good. Great before & after pics. Appears to be M2 Treadway over the gap. Several trucks in your ref pics are Marine Engineering deuce'n'a halfs. Have never seen them modeled. Photos are rare. Same as WWII Marine Engineer's. Some island landing pics show them + yours are the only ones I've seen. PaulE

FINALLY the MARINES ARRIVED...DEF Models and some other Brand.

Not a lot of stuff missing apart from the Treadway Bridge....well now there are only 2 things to do:

1. Finish the PBR diorama

2. Start the Chosin...

Stay tuned
