Here is my loooong over due "Tugu Negara" (Malaysia National Monument) in memory of the fallen hero who fought the communist for the national indepandent.... actually I left this unfinish (no hilight, without flag and unfinishing ground work) on the work bench for nearly 2 years...

These are 1/20 Tamiya pit crew major conversion.

Finally I've completed this diorama. I have no skill in printing decal.... although bought a decal paper, also no laser printer to test.... Finally I've got no choice but hand painted (both side) the "Jalur Gemilang" (Malaysia Flag) on a aluminium sheet you get in the top of drink powder tins like Milo. Hilighted all the figures with Vallejo US uniform colour.... Bought something from hobby supply (I think these are coloured saw dust) to simulate forest Foliage Debris... sprinkle them on the base to make it more looks like forest.... All vegetation are those aquarium used fake plants.

The real monument stand proud in the heart of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Feedback and critiques are welcome.

Nice Work, bro...I especially like the fine reproduction of the No 5 Enfield - the so called 'Jungle Carbine' and the now hard to find bayonet (original, not reproduction) As a collector of Curios & Relics, I notice these things...A nice piece of work commemorating. an almost forgotten subject....thre first successful post war anti-communist counter insurgency in the Pacific Rim.
