HUEYHOG Posted October 28, 2016 Share Posted October 28, 2016 (edited) I'm back:) A few years I started a crazy big 1/35 scale Huey diorama. Unfortunately progress on the Hueys stalled and about a year ago I packed them up as I was moving to a new place. Shortly after moving a friend showed me a big board game called Flames of War. Flames of War uses 1/100 scale models, to have infantry, tank, and air battles. Well this got me thinking about my models and how much fun I could have using Hueys, M16s, AK-47s and so much more. A few months I started making this happen and it's been somewhat slow going as I've had to back track a few times on the way I'm building. Like I should of left everything on the sprues then primed and then painted but it's coming along. I also have epic plans on making a giant game board as the scenery plays a big part in the game. The game board size I've used so far was 4' x 8' and fit snuggly in the living room but the max size is only dependant on imagination and money lol. I've had two battles with the semi complete models and it was quite fun. Having a big basement allowed me to see what a 12' x 24' game board would look like and it's big and cool. One side is US troops being dropped off and the other is the NVA coming out of tunnels with the middle being a high hill and a CH-47 dropping off a howitzer. It does feel a bit overwhelming lol but when it's completed there's countless hours of fun to be had. Tim Edited October 28, 2016 by HUEYHOG Added pics Quote Link to post Share on other sites
