    Aussie in the Korean War.

    Hello,

    I finished this commision late in 2019 but I forgot to post in the 1/6 forums.

    Totally new and unknow it was a challenge for me. The hardest part were the australian gaiters, BGT ACW modified, and the british 37 pattern webbing, thanks to Richard Elbourne and Tony Barton for tutorials, tips and help.

    More photos in Facebook as usual.

    I hope you like it,
    Jaime.

    Nice to see some thing other than WWII or Spec Ops.

    Very nice to see this , a very human looking figure, wearing clothing from three continents to keep him warm! Well done with the '37 webbing.

    I've been wanting do a figure like this for awhile. Ive recently gotten into conflicts that are more rare that require a blend of equipment making it more a kit bash challenge. Great work here! What jacket did you use for this figure? Is that a dragon?

    Well done, Jaime!

    I love the look of his scarf and the work you put into his leggings in particular!

    Bravo!

    Thank you Cameron for the kind words, I appreciate it.
    The jacket is the M51 pattern from Soldier Story, it was an US soldier in the Korean War.
    Probably you can go too with the M43, but you should check it out first.

    Thank you Fred, glad you like it dear friend.
    The scarf is from an old sock.
