    This was a piece I did for my Dad's cousin. Fred Wellhouser was a chopper crewman in Vietnam. He was a Navy man, in an unique unit called the "Seawolves". They were an attack squadron that supported the brown river navy and the seal teams in the river delta regions of Vietnam. They flew UH-1 Huey's that were heavily armed- usually more so than their Marine and Army counterparts. I could not post this in November because the figure was a surprise gift.
    I used the Verlinden 120mm chopper crewman. They essentially wore the same uniforms while on combat patrol. For more on the Seawolves, check this link: http://www.seawolf.org/index.asp

    Great job bringing a rather boring uniform to life Matt. I always love these family projects.

    I wouldn't be surprised if VP sold a few more of those just because of your posting and fabulous painting.
    Very nice indeed.
