Hello all,

I reworked my D-boy so I will show a quick pick here and the rest are on the bottom.



This has been my newest project I have been working on for the past few weeks. I picked up a book that had some concept images and I felt the urge to make a D Boy. I have an idea for a Ranger but that will be a later project. I tried to get him as accurate as possible and I am happy with him. I don't have any plans on changing him.

Comments welcomed!












The Dio:

Plastic Base
Styrofoam wall with plaster build up
Sand mat
Loose sand, small desert rocks, fake dry grass
SS spent and full round casings





The Operator:

SS: SFOD-D body, Flight gloves, Pistol and mags, Butt pack,
DAM: Car 15, Helmet, Goggles, Knee pads
Art Figures: Boots
Toy Soldier: PT body Armor, Vest, All other pouches and grenades/smoke grenades
Play House: Uniform

I weathered all the parts again just to make him blend with the wall better. I tried to show it off the best way with the lighting.










Enjoy, and thanks for looking.

I like it a lot, really impressive stuff. I think the dio would look better if you made the wall higher.

Thanks, I wanted it to look like the wall took a beating. Some of it made it look to big. I want to try a bigger wall on my next dio. Thanks for the support.

So after looking at my D Boy, I decided to change the base body. I prefer the new body and head. I also re-weathered the pants, head, boots, and arms.

I missed this the first time, glad you posted the zoomed up new version. Very nice, and I agree that headsculpt is a good choice for a replacement.

There's two kinds of accurate for this type of figure, movie accurate and real-life period accurate. The black GSG9 Addidas boots were worn in movie by Deltas to make them stand out more from the Rangers, but in real Battle of Mogadishu most Deltas wore the tan desert Danner boots. You just have to decide what look you are going for.
