Being a former Naval officer, I have both vintage-based and modern navy figures. Here are a few of my modern ones. These pics are a few years old; as I've updated them since then. I'll take newer pics when I can.

Here an Ensign (I believe you call them sub-lieutenants) addresses a few of his sailors. The junior officer is a DML figure with bits and pieces from the parts bin. The sailor on the right is from the Hasbro 40mm AA gun, but wearing SOTW uniform. The other sailor is based on an actual Pearl Harbor survival, and was released around 2001. Part of the proceeds of the sale went toward maintaining the Arizona Memorial if memory serves.







More recent pic of the Ensign. I've replaced his tie with binoculars.

Or a "cup of Joe! " Coffee got this nickname thanks to the teetotaler Secretary of the Navy, Josephus Daniels, who made the Navy dry. My ensign is this drinking the strongest drink available!

The Ensign is an homage to both my grandfather's and mine naval service. He was a naval officer in WWII (served in the reserves until 1967) while I served a little over a half-century later. The only major uniform change was that the deck jacket was black/navy blue in my time.

Well done Glidah, we don't get to see too many navy bashes, (and even fewer British Navy bashes)....your US Navy personell look brilliant, and i always did like those US dixie caps, very smart and very American.
Love this!

Neil.

Those dixie caps are an unforgettable icon of the U.S Navy, why not put the caps at a cheeky shore leave tilt (Jaunt?). The Joe on the right has a good head sculpt, I have a similar Joe, I'm thinking of dressing it as a sailor now, after seeing your fine examples.

The Joe on the right came with the navy 40mm anti-aircraft gun; though I updated the uniform. The other sailor is based on an actual Pearl Harbor veteran. Came out in 2001 for the 60th anniversary. The officer uses a DML head that looks like Ben Affleck; since both my grandfather and I are from Boston.
