Hello everyone. Several weeks ago I posted my first 1/6 WWII figure under MG42 Gunner 1944. Its time to unveil my first completed American soldier. I started with the DID Ricky Foster figure. Here is what I have done:

1. Air Brushed the helmet net dark green to tone it down.
2. Added Technical Sgt. Stripes from Toy Soldier Brigade.
3. Cloth 1923 ammunition belt.
4. Metal canteen and cloth cover.
5. 1936 Mussette Bag.
6. Ammo bandolier.
7. 45 Auto with M7 holster.
8. First aid pouch.
9. Fragmentation Grenades.
10. Grenade Pouch.
11. M3 fighting knife.
12. Dragon M1 Garand.

Here is our soldiers problem. How to cross the river. Enjoy the pictures.

Thanks for the compliment. I just don't have the heart to grab the air brush and start weathering him to make it really authentic.

I feel your apprehension. But once you've started the weathering gig, you won't stop. Still, I think he looks great either way.

Weathering those figures is always hard when you haven't done it. Using chalk pastels is a simple way to weather without permanent effects.

Give it a try... it will make a huge difference.

Any recommendations on what brand to use?

This guy looks really nice!

The thing I like about the photos is the scenery. Beautiful Backyard!

Thanks Joe, just utilizing the lake nature trail around my sub division. I am glad none of the neighbors saw me out there taking pictures. They would think I have lost my mind LOL:banana
