The jacket and trousers are cotswold. I wanted it to look as Vam as possible so the helmet boots and belt are all vintage, I even put a palitoy strap on the gun for that authentic look.

Shocked  Wow - I have never seen that particular helmet look so good!  

Top work - I've always found it a bit hit and miss like the Indian wig and the first issue Jungle explorer hat that can often look like it's been borrowed from the local pimp!  But this looks great!

A great looking Ruski. The mix of kit looks like it belongs together

If you want to keep his as VAM as possible you could try to get hold of the Costwold PPSh 41 SMG or Mosin-Nagant Rifle both of these were made from unproduced Palitoy prototypes and so their VAM Pedigree is closer than many things on the market. Very Happy

Nice Figure!  Looks like it belongs that way!

I did this one a couple of weeks ago, GM uni, VAM helmet (I think), Club figure, and Dragon great coat!
