Leaving the Chosin Reservoir
Posted by MAC on Wednesday, February 07, 2018 6:14 PM

On 27th Nov. 50, thousands of Chinese troops swarmed over the frozen Yalu River, on the N. Korean/Chinese border, cutting off US Marines in the Chosin Reservoir area. Over the next ten days the Marines, with air support from both the Navy and Marine Air Wings, fought their way out of the trap to Hungnman and safety.

 

 

Thanks for looking All comments are welcomed

Looks good MAC. What figures and Jeep kit did you use for this diorama?

FYI, “Chosin, Frozen Ordeal of the Korean War” is a very good thorough book on this subject.

Fantastic job with the diorama. I have to agree with Templar1099

It sure looks cold. Hate to be in the boots.

Did a good job with the lighting. I particularly like the setting or rising sun effect.

Yeah, don't think I can give a better compliment that it makes me want to shiver with cold too. And great job getting across the whole feeling of despair and desolation.

Very nice dio. A good example of how effective it is NOT to pack in a lot of extra stuff. Keep the eye on the main subject.

In particular the figures are really well done. The jeep looks right, too.

A few super minor comments. There's a gap or something at the base of the rocks. It needs snow I guess. And is the jeep making tracks?

The design of the dio is just right.
