I am looking for info on unis and equipment on ARVN Rangers. I just received my free joe club figure and he reminds me of a friend who served in the Rangers during the war. I would like to do a figure based on him. Any info would be appreciated. Thanks!
Here is somethig I did last year
Helmet, body, uniform -Cotswold
Rifle, boots, web gear-Dragon
Flak Jacket-Toy Soldier
Some people say Cotswold is too toy-like (sorry Greg) but some of their stuff is first rate, like the helmet- you can find this figure on Epay if you look
Osprey offers a book titled Vietnam Airborne, Elite Series #29. It offers information on uniforms and equipment used by the various units. Best go with the Cotswold ARVN uniform, M65 107 or Tiger strips.
