Another 'Nam 'bash. This time a US Army Officer.

The fatigue shirt and pants are from the first Action Man fuzzhead Soldier basic figure...



Holster, pistol and belt are from the painted head Action Man Talking Commander. GI Joe name tag is from the GI Joe Action Soldier basic figure...



Boots are from the Action Pilot basic figure and the cap is from the GI Joe Action Soldier basic figure...



Sunglasses are from the GI Joe Classic Collection Korean War Pilot, medal ribbon and shoulder flash are from the GI Joe Action Soldier basic figure...



Map is from the Command Post set and metal rank insignia on the collar are from the painted head Action Man Talking Commander...



All modelled on a blonde, painted head 40th Action Man. Smile

He looks great! the only thing it that Army officers (aside from generals) only wear their rank on the left collar. Their branch goes on the right.



Wearing the same basic uniform, Air Force officers do wear the rank on both collars.



That aside; a great looking 60s officer!

Nope. Leaving them on. It's Action Man, not Dragon. It's never been about forensic accuracy.
