Wally's Vietnam Dioramas and Models

These pages are in memory of Walter Velechko.

Walter "Wally" Velechko was an amazing diorama maker who specialized in Vietnam era scenes and equipment. Here you can see some of his work.

He was also a member of the New Jersey International Plastic Modeler's Society (NJIPMS)

His estate is currently selling all of these dioramas and a lot of other vintage vietnam era materials including equipment, uniforms, patches, magazines and more. You can check out that stuff on flickr right here

 

Wally did a variety of diorama designs including a couple of large and very detailed ones -the most amazing of which is called "Checkin out the locals". That is the last picture on this page. He also did a large number of single piece dioramas which displayed a piece of light or heavy armor on a base. And he did a series of figures on bases. Let's take a look at some of his work.
