Bukit Kepong: The Malayan Alamo


I spent almost 5 month modelling time mainly working on this project and enjoyed every minute of it.

I'd like to take this opportunity to thank our local modelling club (SFTPMS) and fellow members who chipped in a lot of help in the doing research on the uniform. Some even had the courtesy to travel to the actual site and museum to take photos as reference.

About CPTan (cptan)

Hey, I'm CPTan from Malaysia. Like most of you guys, I started plastic modelling when I was a kid with Matchbox and Airfix. Didn't care much about painting and detail then as they were more towards 'play and destroy'. Stop this hobby for about twenty years or so for more "serious adult stuff"... and...


A masterpiece, mon ami! Very very good. One of the best vignettes I've seen in a while, CK. Your conversion of the figures is outstanding, especially the faces. Though I must say you could have made the woman a tad more beautiful than you have (yes, we have Malays over here in SL, and some of them are hot stuff!). I love the whole setting, and the poses are very realistic. The bullet damaage too is perfect. Very authentic. Good photography too.

I followed before the SBS threat of this vignette and now having it as a feature is really nice. Thanks CPTan for sharing and thanks Rudi for arranging this.
