Hey everyone! This is the tenth MOC in my military history series and the third WWII MOC. It is another one that I have updated since it was originally posted on the Gallery. The build shows American troops attacking a Japanese mortar position in the Pacific Theater of the war. I imagine that the position is located on an island within a river, likely close to the shore so that the troops only would have had to walk through shallow water. Anyway, here are the picture descriptions:
At the front, you can see the three Americans and their dog charging towards the mortar position. A palm tree with two parrots sticks out above the rest of the scene, while the slow, clear river water flows past the small island.
On the right side of the build, you can see the close-quarters combat that is taking place between a Japanese soldier and an American soldier. To the left of the troops, another Japanese soldier is rushing to support his comrade.
Over on the left side, the Japanese officer is preparing to clash with a different American. Further back, the American light machine gunner is passing by a some flowering plants and one of the Japanese supply barrels.
At the back of the MOC, more supply barrels and another plant are visible behind the Japanese troops and mortar. One of the Japanese soldiers has already fallen during the combat, and the others are fighting to avenge him and to defend their position.
That's it for this creation! Number eleven, the final WWII MOC will hopefully be posted next weekend!
Hope you like it! Please tell me what you think in the comments!
