Great work.

What makes the boat move? Is there a small, quiet, motor that I didn't notice?

Excellent question OSL, no motor or oars I can see. Some kind of bar extending from the stern? Also is the black dude centre wearing an NVA cover? interesting.

ERDL on the white dudes is questionable. Highlighting on the packs is amazing. Scenery is really cool. Red bandana on lead white dude? Hmm, maybe not in a serious recon unit. Then again that dude has fully exposed arms too..Maybe in this scenario he's supposed to die/expose the team to detection – maybe he's "that guy"?

IMHO… there is a little outboard motor in the back… it is black and is covered partially in the photo nb 2 by a tree trunk whose end seems cut off… it can be seen better in photo nb 1

Anyway… happy you like it boys…

okay, for some reason I was assuming this was 'Nam, it's got to be Africa or a made up scenario. I've made 1/35 stuff for the characters that show up in my RPG scenarios.

Those flag patches? Bundeswehr?

Edit: Oh I know why I assumed it was 'Nam! Just checked the topic name again! ha.

Okay, maybe in 1975 a secret team of non-Americans was sent into Nam on a mission to find endangered German missionaries or something?

Edit again: Man this diorama gets more and more stupid the more I look at it. Why does the black guy have a bandolier of NERF darts strapped to his leg? That flag patch on the lead guy, now I'm thinking its from a central/south American country? Huuuuuh?
