Thanks for your cool comments. The Radio is from (BBI-21667) US Army 10th Mountain Div: "Master Sargeant Lucus" (BBi) (2006) and the pouch is DML USMC Force Recon, on Basra's Outskirts, Iraqi Freedom, Walt (DR# 70266) (2003) Box figure set.

HAve u changed something on the boots? THe shoelace holes? Marvelous job!
Lee,

What I found is that the foot of most figures does not have an arch on top, so when you use cloth boots on a figure the boot can look very flat and out of shape. What I do is add a little fiber file (12 oz) to the in side of the boot at the front of the leg and on top of the foot to give the boot a little rise.

It takes a bit of shaping to form the boot as you would like which also means you must adjust the amount of fiber fill you use. I make the laces loose at the bottom and tighter at the top and like a good soldier, I make sure I tuck in / stow the laces at the top of the boot. There is not need to over tighter the laces the fiber fill adds good support. Do not add to much fiber fill or the foot cannot bend forward. Hope that helps!

Where'd u get the M16A4?
GabRaz,

The M16A4 is from DML USMC Force Recon, on Basra's Outskirts, Iraqi Freedom, Walt (DR# 70266) (2003) box figure set. Monkey Depot or Echo Base Toys still have a few. I added a BBi AN/PEQ-2 and Surefire Universal, M951 weapons light; and the DML ACOG scope, Knights Armament foregrip, and Colt iron sight from one of their carded sets. On the foregrip I glued the related switches to the foregrip and then added a little OD tape. The Marines have not gone to the M4. To quaify in the USMC it must be done at 800 meters, the M4 is about 300 to 400 meters. Only special units used M4. The MSPF as a whole still use the M16. Hope That helps!
