Slight change to Karl Van Der Schmidt. He is now of the 60s/70s time of 5th COMMANDO under the command of Col Mike "Mad" Hoare.

Thank You Kindly Chaps.

The Bino's cost £5 posted from HK on ebay. The satchel Just recently got and does add a LOT and I think helps make it look great for the period too.

Thanks guys Very Happy

@Capt Never thought of that But major change to DPM, Modern Kit and either M16s or L85s.

Figured a perfect topic to go with a VAM is a 60s theme. Just ordering stuff to do Roger Moore's Lt Flynn character in tropical DPM, with beret from banjoman and Irish Guards badge.

Just need sort Walther P38, Uzi and headsculpt now. Plus Going to have a crak at a 1/6th Col Mike "Mad" Hoare himself and his old warhorse comrade Ian Yule aka Tosh in the WILD GEESE film.
