I've recently been looking at websites dedicated to various ARP civilian volunteers from the WWII London Blitz...

The ARP men and women's uniforms were a bit "make-do" in most cases and were not always uniform with many variations combining civilian clothing and uniform pieces...

These inspired my latest kitbash, a volunteer ARP Fire Guard, a 'bash that combines various elements found in many different photos of the era...

I used (yet another!) Geyper Man jumpsuit as the basis for the 'bash...

The gas mask bag is from the Action Man British Infantryman set. It is the late issue version in a lighter fabric than the first issue. German Stormtrooper jackboots stand in for wellington boots...

The armband (the inspiration fo rthe 'bsah) is from One Sixth Scale King. Belt is from the Action Man Luftwaffe set...

Helmet is from the GI Joe Collector's Club Desert Jeep Driver figure with added stencil lettering. Shirt dickey is by Cotswold. Tie is of unknown origin as it came in a grab bag of bits and pieces...

Axe is from the Action Man Fireman set...

Very unique idea for a 'bash! I really like it a lot. WWII is of great interest to me so this is right up my alley. I've been thinking of doing a Home Guard figure and this would be a great companion. I love those photos too.

Thanks for the tip on One Sixth Scale King having the arm band. They had some nice items for a Chaplain figure I did.

Very nicely done!!!

Brian
