Tunnel Rats

Postby tsweeney » Sun Dec 28, 2014 12:59 am

The VC used caves for all sorts of things like medical station, hiding food stores and stored weapons. This diorama depicts a U.S. Marine squad finding such a tunnel and preparing to go down in it

I purchased a silicon mold and I put plaster of paris into the mold and it set I then took a small sponge and dipped it in a wash of Yellow ocher, black and burnt umber and spotted the different on the finished mold.If you have any other questions, feel free to contact me.
