This was my attempt at a serious (for me) kitbashing for Dec 2012...


The red hat is a vintage Sindy one? Laughing , the white bobble is from a vinatge MR.ACTION winter/adventure outfit, 40th repainted boots, homemade white putees ( old pair of braces ), modified vam gun, tartan scarf is my sisters old Bay City rollers scarf, vam haversack/belt, 40th white gloves... i had to half uncard a set for these.
The red Arctic Patrol outfit is from a 1960's doll outfit i think?, it came in with a job lot of 1960's Sindy clothes. I had to make major modifications/sewing to get it to hang level and straight

He looks rather fab Clive. When I show this to Jemma she is soooooo going to want one especially the bobble hat and scarf.

What did you use to make the mag clips for the sterling? I need one for a sterling and one got a sten???

I remember thinking this was such an original and unusual bash when I first saw it. I thought it very sixties and could be anything from my favourite childhood programmes from Thunderbirds to The Persuaders to James Bond/Sean Connery up in the Alpines!!!

I had to tone the colour down a bit on the above photos.

Homemade ammo clips...
I cut up an old Xbox Live subscription card and Game reward card. I used a model knife and razor saw to cut the plastic. A Stanley type knife can be used instead-(wear safety goggles), superglue, sandpaper and fast drying Games Workshop acrylic paint. Cut two strips of plastic card about 1" long/6mm wide each and glue them together then i did a bit of shaping/cutting to get it to fit into the slot. I gave the ammo clips 3 thin coats of acrylic paint. My clips are not the same width as vam clips, but they will do until i can make better ones.
