    Nice try at it! Modelling smoke and fire is tough to do.

    Good job again DD. One nitpick though, you have the flamethrower operator using an M1/M1A1 flamethrower. The Marine Corps had long been transitioned to the M2 type and all pictures I've seen of flamethrower operators on IWO they're using/carrying the M2. That's not to say that it was impossible for an M1/M1A1 to have made it to IWO, just that it is unlikely in the extreme.

    And the BAR guy needs to shave! (?) Don't listen to that chowder head; very freakin' cool piece, the scorched Japanese soldier is a nice touch.

    I agree it's a very cool piece, I did say it was a good job. It's just somethings jump out at you sometimes and I don't know why but the flamethrower type jumped out at me. I love the movie "Rules of Engagement" but when the CH-46's change to CH-47's it just jumps out and hit's me betwen the eyes! Most people don't notice.

    As for the "chowder head" remark, that's very un-Marine Corpish, I'd prefer to be called "turd", "scumbag", etc. something a little more creative, something with a little more edge. Don't go all moderate on me now that you're a Trustee.;)

    Another piece that portrays what they went through. Thanks, despite the wayward comments of Price and formerjughead (Brad).

    this is a great piece. I wish I can make something like that but I'm flat broke. Again, this piece of work is amazing.
