Well here is a bash that I have been working on for a while.  I could not justify the price of purchasing a vintage GAJ figure but I think the results look pretty close to the origional.

The boots and pants are from the Skyhawk figure.  

The jacket, shirt and tie are Dragon.  

The holster, belt and shoulder belt are all scratch built from vinyl. The belt even has the stitch marks like the original.

The helmet took the use of various broken bits and bobs.  

The shoulder and collar badges were made from scans provided by members here.

I'll add this one next to my Israeli Paratrooper bash.

Very well done! cheers cheers cheers

The custom made belt, strap and holster are excellent! How did you get the belt to have that stiched look? Did you use a needle/pin? bounce

It is a trade secret but I could make one for you.
