Always looking for an idea to expand my Royal Navy ranks, this is my latest kitbash, a Royal Navy Sailor dressed for duty in cold weather...



Starting piece for this 'bash was the idea of dyeing the AM Equipment Centre card Duffle Coat navy blue in colour instead of its usual green...



Very pleased with the dye job...



Cap is from an Ark Royal Sailor figure as are the pants and boots...



Sweater is from an Adventurer basic figure and the sextant is from the Polar Explorer set...



Pictured with another recent Royal Navy acquisition. A MAM uniform - the Naval Commander Uniform from the James Bond: YOu Only Live Twice set. I wish I had a dozen of those hats - the best piece of MAM kit I've seen.

Looks like he stepped straight off the deck of HMS Endurance, well done.

Really liking your Sailor there the_pauley, he looks ready to go to sea. He will be nice on warm on deck with that winter coat he's wearing Very Happy.

Looks stunning as usual mate :-). Did you step the colour out of the duffle coat before you died it? If so what temp did you wash it on? And was it Dylon? Thanks Mark

I usually do bleach the colour out of fabrics before dyeing, but in this case I didn't as the fabric and fuzzy nap of the coat seemed too delicate, Just did a straight dye job and it came up a treat. Smile

And yes it was a Dylon hand dye.
