    My Marine Corps League Detachment asked me to make a diorama that will be displayed in the New Jersey Viet Nam Veteran Museum I saw one made by Steve Zulenski and asked his permission to reproduce it He said okay and I hope I can do it justice It is about the U.S, Marines 1/5 retaking The Citadel in Hue during Tet Here's the start

    Nice work...some diesel spill stains and paint scratching (from entrenching tool and jerry can usage - if nothing else) regular boot scuffs from crew mouting the tank buy the same route...and photograph under natural light.
    But a mighty fine effort!

    Nice work, but one question. In the frontal picture of the tank there is a dark line across the front hull where the upper and lower hull meets, is this a gap? If so it needs to be filled.
