Vietnam’s military history reappears through scale models

Vietnam’s historical military milestones, including April 30 victory and victory of the “Dien Bien Phu battle in the air”, are illustrated through a collection of scale models made by Nguyen Hoang Quang, a 40-year-old man in Hanoi.

 Through Quang’s interpretation, every detail of the models comes alive with their own flair.
