can the chest rig hang lower so you can pull it tighter against his stomach?
black holsters were more common in 'nam, I think. (hard to come by in 1/6 though)
I love the whole load-out and the reddish dirt weathering, bravo!
I Picked up the original figure from a shop that was closing down in Asia. It was great to get a long out of production figure cheaply but the downside was that items had started to deteriorate where he had been displayed in a hot window or cabinet
A lot of his equipment had been glued in place and other parts had simply started to break up
I stripped the figure down, changed out the headsculpt, repaired his broken equipment and weathered / distressed his very shiny and bright combat uniform
The chest rig was quite fragile so I could only really get away with it the way it is as the knots had been glued
It looks great! I really like the red dirt weathering. For my Nam guys I used to get the brown holster and paint it black. Then I'd scrape off a bit of the black around the edges and high spots to get a worn look.
