OK that's a very long name.

This is one of my favorite figure. Nice gear loads, weapons, accessories and color combinations. I especially like the P226 with removable light attachment.

The mods I did:
- I changed the parachute harness to black using HT's. While the opening parachute is a nice gimmick, I hate the gray color.
- For this photo op I borrowed HT bendy hands and SS gloves, I'll try to make a more suitable bendy hands later on... hopefully.
- I removed the liner inside the helmet so that the earphones fit more snugly.
- Lastly I modified the NVG mount using VH's mount so that it becomes more posable and can hold any pose I want.

And now on to the pictures:












WHEEEEE! I'm Superman.....

Any comments?

Looks great man. You've inspired me to crack open one of my McCabes and put him together.

How does that VH NVG mount work for you? The only one I have is really loose. QC issue I guess.
Thanks Sgt. Schultz.

Forgot to add, the VH mount was very loose at the beginning.

In theory you could disassemble every parts down, add super glue to the joints, wait for them to dry and re-assemble them. The super glue, when dried, adds friction to the joints making them tighter.

While in my case, I simply dabbed a small amount of multi purpose glue on the mount (while fully assembled) and then kept moving the parts before it dried. It added friction to the parts, making them tighter. Of course this left some unsightly glue leftovers which I had to trim when the glue dried.

Hope this helps.

Innovative posing techniques. I like him, but you asked for comments, so...

Move the altimeter to the left wrist, as that's where it goes per SOP. For a slightly (because his position is very good) better pose, keep his arms/hands at the same level, but bend the elbows to approximately 90 degrees; this will bring his hands in closer to his head, which is a more realistic position. The strobe is in a good position on the back of his helmet, but that tape across the body will interfere with the switch sliding up to turn it on; a narrow strip at the top and bottom will hold it in place, and allow the switch to function properly. Find a way to secure the pistol in the holster, and if you install a bungee cord to keep his NODs in position, jumping them installed on his helmet would be feasible. Tuck that zipper pull on his fleece inside to keep it from flaying his face during freefall. His M4 should be secured to the side of his parachute container, not his daypack; I believe that the box art has it positioned properly, but I haven't looked at it in quite a while.

Again, I like him, those are just a couple of small things that caught my eye.
