“Gypsy Birth Control” Diorama by Ray Lawson II

Built for his father-in-law… this diorama is beautiful as is usual for Ray Lawson’s works!

I built this diorama for my father in law, who is a Vietnam veteran. He was a gunner on a Quad 50 gun truck. This was built using a gun set from a half-track and a deuce and a half, and two or three different small kits, a mortar, an outdoor first aid station, a wounded soldier being carried, and a jeep with c rations! This one took a couple of years to do and I left a flat place to the right of the dio for him to put his medals and ribbons. It was then encased in Plexiglas. The gypsy birth control across the gun cover was on his actual truck!
