    Beautiful job!

    The only thing I think I might have done would be to give him his Cocorans..... That is a point that could get argued 'till one of the Easy boys might be able to answer for us.

    Thanks Hankster.

    I know in the movie he did wear the Cocorans. I had an extra pair of the double buckles so I just went with them. Not sure on the real accuracy though.
    Thanks again.

    Your repaint makes him look much more like the character. Your WW2 figures are all so very well done.

    Thats cool. Looks just like him. All you need now is a few bottles of VAT 69. I have some 1/6th scale VAT 69 boxes that were made by a seller on eBay called "onesixthscaleking". Great figure you have. David

    Thanks again everyone
    I like the idea of getting some VAT bottles. Nixon did indeed like his booze

    nice figure, Ryan. Do you have any close-ups of the head that you repainted?

    I can take some close ups.....
    It's the DID Albert Ross repainted. Its readily available on most 1/6 retail sites if you are looking for the sculpt to purchase.
