    Looking for a old thread - Review of TS/ACE/Sideshow 'Nam BDUs

    I've been looking for the old thread - Review of TS/ACE/Sideshow 'Nam Battle Dress Uniforms which was posted in OSW in few years ago. I cannot find it!

    Can anyone post a link to the review thread please.

    I'm also looking for Toy Soldier Vietnam BDUs as well.

    Hi Sji . . Thanks but this is not the thread that I am looking for.

    There was a photo review which showed Sideshow, TS, ACE & Dragon Olive Green Vietnam BDUs

    I know what your talking about, but I dont remember if it was an actual thread, or a conversation in a thread. Nothing came up in the search.

    Im pretty sure Apache was one of the guys involved in the conversation and may have posted picks, but I'll try to help you out as much as I can from memory (Ive owned almost all the vietnam uniforms released)

    SST: Good fit on most figures, material is slightly on the thick side, the color green is good, but a bit off from real OD fatigues, material is the same as the DML fatigues (cotton)
    DML: Cotton, good shade of OD, fits almost all figures, comes in 2 different styles (Early and late patterns)
    TS/wildwork: Great color, great material, may fit tightly on some nudes but fits good so long as you dont tuck the pants into the boots.
    ACE: Decent color, great material, a very worn, faded look. Fits ALL figures, cut is perfect.
    21C: Ok color, strange material, fits most figures
    HT: Color is iffy in certain lights, mostly too dark to be OD. Cut is also kind of tight (worse then TS imo) and the pockets are on the small side.

    I hope that helped

    Thanks for this very useful info.

    Yes that is what I was looking for 'cos I remembered that there was a photo which showed comparison of 4 different 1/6th companies: Dragon, Sideshow, ACE & Toy Soldier product: OG BDUs.

    I also remembered that the majority preferred TS's OG BDU for its good value and correct colour.

    Not sure if I am right.

    My conclusions on HT's Vietnam OG BDUs is extremely disappointing which is why I'm seeking OG BDU replacement either Dragon or TS.

    I purchased a TS OG BDU from ebay but found that there was a mistake as it turned out to be ACE OG BDU! But I'm not bothered 'cos there were favourable reviews on ACE OG BDU
