Here is a legionnaire from the 1st REP in April 1961.
The base is the "Henri" figurine from Little French Army (DID).
The beret is from Banjoman
The MAS 49/56, the beret badge, the regimental badge, the parachutist's badge, the strapping buckles, the belt buckles are of my manufacture
Here are my last two realizations in 3D printing.
An AN / PRC 6 transceiver and the French version TRPP 8
The difference between the two models is the presence of a channel selector on the French version.
AN PRC 6
I haven't posted anything on this forum for a long time.
The reasons are various, less motivation for the 1/6, less interesting things to present because I specialize in the French army and the manufacturers don't do much for me.
And then I was more on Facebook.
Two years ago, I...
I have bought a book on French special forces and many operators use that set cammo -that is used in the pants of the French Special Forces Soldier Story figure too-.
It would make a nice kitbash but I guess it is nearly impossible to find a set that was released so many years ago.
I posted pics of this figure when he was partway done. Now he's a lot further along with just one further things to attempt.
I've used an Action Man (the British version of GI Joe) because this is what first got me hooked on 1/6 back when I was just 5 years old. I wanted to see just how far I...
Well, managed to finally complete my French Foreign Legion in Op Serval in Mali. There is a 4th, he just isn't pictured. All a mix of Soldier Story, DAM, E&S.

This figure has been on my to do list for a number of years, work and family commitments have meant I've less time to indulge in putting together one sixth figures. My shelves are full of unfinished projects

Ive just recently got into the French Indochina War and have put some figures together. Something that has eluded me is the distinctive white Kepi. Doesn't anyone know where I could pick one of these up? Or is there a tutorial posted on how to make one that I haven't stumbled across?
Just want to share with you, the latest work of my friend Raymond Boyer. it's a French machine gun Hotchkiss in use from WWI to Indochina war.

How’s it going dudes and gals, I’m brand new to the forum and I could use a little help. So I have a fondness of the French foreign legion, especially the 2eme REP Of the GCP in the current year So I figured my first one sixth scale figure should be well, just that. So I obtained all the...
The 10ème Bataillon Parachutiste de Chasseurs à Pied (10ème BPCP, Parachute Battalion of Foot Riflemen) was deployed in Indochina from 1950 to 1952. It particularly distinguished itself in the defence of the Red River Delta and the Thai Highlands, both in North Vietnam, all along 1951. It did...
Hi the OSW friends,
Some outdoor photos and fun, with my french figures. There are some special forces from Commando Parachutiste de l´air nº 10 (CPA 10) in the "Sabre" operation in the Sahel
Comments and criticism are welcome!!! Thanks!!
I have a lot of projects in the pipeline for World War I and most of what is currently available is either inadequate, hard to find, or just too expensive to buy in large scale. So I have decided to make my own.
WWI French Zouave Lebel ammunition pouches (with proper rear pouch attachment)...
