Before I set the game up I sent a bit of time looking at model planes and helicopters that I could use in my game. It was then that decided to try something out.
Almost 20 years ago I first started gaming in 20mm scale and I had some planes and helicopters lying around that I had used back then.
This got me wondering - how would 1/72 scale planes and choppers look like on a flight stand with the 28mm figures?
Provided the craft were never at the same level of the 28mm figures, I thought it could work ok.
I was pleased with the results, so I will show what I did:
|LRRPs in a crater pop a smoke grenade as a wave of NVA close in|
|A fast mover flies over head to drop its payload on the NVA|
|Another shot of the fast mover|
|Once the jet clears the area a huey comes in to extract the LRRPs|
|The slick at another angle.|
These photos also show the attempt at a smoke grenade that I made.
I honestly think that the 1/72 models can be used in a game just as long as they aren't next to the figures.
I also have a Cobra gunship [the skids broke off :-( ] and a bird dog spotter plane that I can use.
Also, please note that this is not a battle report - just a few photos experimenting with the models after I laid out some scenery for my next game.
