That SOPMOD M14 has to be made in 1/6!

During my visit to HK I got to do an impromptu interview with Alan HSU of TS and
he said they were going to do a short barrel and long barreled version of the M14.

They will also impove their mold of the M4 which will come with new accessories.
He was particularly proud of the fact that he was given permission by SUREFIRE to do their products in onesixth.
That's some pretty awesome news Dunk! Glad to hear they're improving on the Mold and that we're getting new Accessories.

To hold us over until we can always get Alan Hsu's stuff we can always get Angies sculpt from Spartan Rex.

PS

I have a full version of the fourth picture on the top of this thread... just so you know. If anyone wants it.

This is really good news, it would be wonderfull to have the full range of surefire flashlights and silencers in 1/6th. :hyper

Unfortunatley Wimpie, I was not prepared with questions when I bumped into him at his main store and HQ or I would have certainly asked about Multicam gear.

Although his english wasnt perfect and I couldnt speak a word of Chinese heres what other info I could gather:

Modern - Improved bendy hands, more cloth gloved hands in future releases, upcoming Cloth Adidas SAS/SWAT boots.

NAM - Upcoming web gear/Helmet sets, at least 2 new Nam figs one being Reg Infantry

Fem Figs - New more conservative BABE sets in the pipeline.

Thats some awesome news here. It sounds like I'll be broke for a stretch of time, getting the 'Nam webbing. God knows how much of that stuff I'll end up needing. :lol

Marine Expeditionary Force!

here's a small contribution to this thread! Found these badass pics on mp.net and thought they had some bashing potential ( if you can manage to find the gear!) these are pics of "U.S. Marines assigned to Dam Security Unit 3 conduct a reconnaissance patrol along the Al Wzar River around Ramadi, Iraq, Oct. 21, 2006. Marines of DSU-3 are deployed with I Marine Expeditionary Force (Forward) in support of war on terror. U.S. Marine Corps photo by Sgt. Edward Reagan"






hope you enjoyed!

2007 Ranger Rendezvous Pics...Lots of pics of 75th RGT in ACU and jump gear. Couple of the pics have a Soldier jumping with a freefall chute and protec..not sure if Soldier with Protec is a Ranger though. Could be the Ranger Reconnaisance Detachment? I remember reading that they are Military FreeFall qualified.

This pic, middle Ranger running off dropzone looks to be carrying a MK12 Mod 1 SPR since it's got a suppressor on it.

And a few of the pics also show Rangers using DBAL IR designators on their M4s instead of AN/PEQ-2s..we need some 1:6 DBALs..
