Put another Sears set together. As with the last set I had to make a custom box as I can't find one for love nor money!

Excellent job mate, looks great.

I was very very lucky to come across a complete one here about 2 years ago, cost me a small fortune, but no regrets

I am very lucky, I picked this up from a guy who lives about 20 miles away, and yes everything is complete and in the box.

Yeah, I've amassed everything I need on the AM front and now find myself being drawn to the Joe's. I just got to get a decent job so I can start buying.... Rolling Eyes

Now that's definitely a set to play with outdoors!

Great work on the custom box, aj! cheers  Did it take you long to put that set together?  Smile

No it didn't take long at all. I googled 'Sears G.I Joe' and saw the 'Forward Observer' set and thought to myself "I have all that gear, some in spares" so I put it together with a Joe figure and printed off the lid on some A4 sticker paper, I also had a nice box with a lid that looked ok. Hey presto!
Those small camo radios are a hard find and that one was sitting in my wooden 'Locker Box' so had to replace it with an ordinary brown one.

Thanks for sharing this great idea,aj!  cheers 

I need to visit my local 'Staples' store, I've got a printer just sitting here doing nothing. I'm thinking of doing something similar to what you've done, plus I need to make some 'sticker decals' for my vam/MAM vehicle fleet. My local post office sells cheap quality boxes that could house a custom set bounce
