Hi, I'm planning to update 3 of my modern DML figures with ACU gear from Toy Soldier. These will go with my BBI Lucas figure (that already has ACU gear) so that I can make a 4 man fire team from the 101st.

Anywayz, I am going to begin with this '93 Task Force Ranger figure called Matt.

As you can see, I still have to replace the BDU with the ACU. Now, I was wondering if this belt pouch set would go with the ACU vest?

Or does anyone think it's too outdated? I have ACU pouches that came with the ACU uniform from Toy Soldier, so this figure would still have some gear on him if this belt pouch set does'nt go on. Any help and suggestions would be appreciated, thank you.

I think it could still work... but this is the wrong section for this i believe.

Okay, I'll start up this thread again on the main section. Sorry about that, mods please delete this thread.

In most picures I've seen of US soldiers in ACU, they really don't wear utility belts as much as MOLLES and pouches.

What figure is that that you're using? You mentioned BBI but isn't that a DML figure?

I said a BBI figure would be part of the team. The picture is of one of the DML figures. This thread is already about a year old and I've already completed the team as well as make many other changes since then.

I got that on the first line of the thread. The reason I ask about the DML figure is that I just bought a box of stuff from another member here at OSW that included 2 DML figures. One of them is the figure you have pictured above and I'm simply wanting to know what figure it is. By the way, do you have a pic of the completed work?

Thanks

Yes, the one on the picture is a Ranger called Matt. He came with a Delta Force figure but I can't remember it's name right now.

This is how the completed group looked like last year-

Man that looks choice. My only problem is that I get the feeling your pics are gonna end up costing me money as now I'm tempted to put one together myself. Luckily ACUs are a little easier to come by these days.

As for the Matt figure, you say it came as a pair with a Delta figure? If so, I'll look into it as the figure I got looked pretty spot on.

Thanks again for the feedback and the pics.

The Matt figure has since been replaced by a HT ACU figure.
