Very nice. You've given a great atmosphere of the 60s.

I've seen these before in flickr, and I'm still impressed by the Huey chopper seeing it again this time. I simply love the accurate detailing and the overall SNOT build. The Ford Mutt is very well done too. A great pair of military MOCs GabryS, thanks for sharing! :thumbup:

i like that soldier in the sleeveless top!

now you just need to do a M113 APC to complete the looks.

I really like your Huey, looks just like the real thing in the right scale!  :thumbup:
Your Mutt looks a bit long in the pictures, but it could be the angle.
Why do you need TLC to make sets for you, all you really need is parts...be creative!

The build a frigate tutorail!

Great work, GabryS! :thumbup:

I really like the Ford Mutt. The tires, steering (!) sideways-mounted 1x1 round plates (mirrors?), and folding windscreen are all awesome. :thumbup:

The Huey is great as well--the sliding door is well-built! :thumbup: I also like how you built the main rotor mount--is that tilting I see? *oh2*

Please see my Brickshelf gallery for more MOCs!

I don't mind if anyone borrows any part of any of my MOCs. Please be sure to give me credit though.
