    Iraqi Special Police Commando & Advisor (pic heavy )

    The Bombing of the "Golden Mosque" in Samarra, Iraq, on 22 Feb 06, set off waves of violence between the Sunni and Shia muslim.

    http://www.globalsecurity.org/milita...rra-mosque.htm

    With the 2nd Anniversary of the destruction of that historical landmark, and my too close front row seat to it approaching here shortly, it spurred me to make a simple, generic bash of an Iraqi Special Police Commando. Also upgraded the psuedo mini-me that I had shown earlier last year here :

    A simple bash, with the Police Commando, and I tried to make the beret sit the way they often wore it, all puffed up, rather than tight and formed as the way we do.




    Upgrades to the sorta mini me dude, include a decent ACH with DCU cover, added some glint tape to the top, the restraining straps on the back side of it. Also added the MNFI patch that we wore since we were assigned to a sub command of it known as the Multi-National Security Transition Command Iraq, or MNSTC-I ( pronounced Mensticky, lol ).
    Also created a single point sling like I had.





    And them together


    Sorry for the long winded post, and thanks for looking. Mike

    Right on. Pretty cool, with some history to back it. Cool looking repaint on the sculpt, and shadowing too.
