Hello chaps.. Long time no nothing... All well?

Bought this on an impulse buy at the beginning of June, spurred on by the D-Day landings anniversary.

The kit is 21st Century soldier. The body and head it came with went in the spares bin. Surprisingly enough, the VAM head fit into the helmet, and as I'd never cleaned it up since I bought it of evilbay, it right looks the part.

I put the fuzzy head onto a B.B.I. clone body, and voila. Am treating it as WIP, as there's lots of bits I'd like to make a little better looking, such as the helmet strap, some hedgerow on the helmet, the webbing, the Sten.

Will take some better shots once he's finished, but for now, 'ere's me Para.





Cheers,

Nick
