The inspiration behind this figure came from seeing a picture of NSWDG Gold Team operator Matt Mills (RIP Warrior), wearing Desert Tiger Stripe and AOR1 plate carrier.



Most details of the loadout are also borrowed from pictures of Devgru operators in the 2006-2008 period.
I'm afraid I went a bit heavy on the fading of the BDU, but replacements are hard to come by. And the pics are not as sharp as I would have liked them to, but the light was so-so when I did the shooting.

Comments and critics are welcome.

Thanks everyone for your kind comments.

A recurrent problem with a shoulder has prevented me to tackle full custom clothing for quite a time. I am stuck to doing bashes for the time being.

The beard and hair were made with the usual method of glueing (white glue) small tufts by small tufts of fake fur.

Cheers.
Eric
