"The Roach" (Apocalypse Now)

Hi Again Guys,

Well here's something I did recently. Saw the Classic Movie Apocalypse Now for the hundredth time and always loved this character, who is in the movie only for a few minutes. He left an indelible mark on my brain. "The Roach" played by Herb Rice was a seminal character (for me) in Francis Ford Coppola's Vietnam Masterpiece Movie. Well here's my take on the "Roach".
"Go get the Roach Nigga!!"

"The Roach"

Grenadier

Do Lung Bridge
Nung River

Vietnam
1969

Apocalypse Now

































































just some reference images-





thank you for looking

Light travels faster than sound. That's why some people appear bright until you hear them speak.

The zebra stripe pattern on the M-79 is psychedelic!

Awesome job 'bashing the figure from the movie, Miguel!

Well done!
