what if Palitoy extended the range to include a naval officer , this is my rendition in working wear ,
Firstly I painted an action man officers cap the appropriate colours and then utilized one of Tony Barton's brilliant cap badges ,in this case a royal naval officer cap badge which I then painted as it comes in pewter, Ii could of used a phot copy but personally don't think it would of looked as good . I also used a Cotswold polo neck jumper for this ,I would of used a white adventurer jumper if I had a spare , I used the gi joe crew cut edition p coat for this bash but could of quite easily obtained one from Cotswold , another good coat for this would have been an actionman duffel coat which I would of dyed black , 40th action man 1st edition sailor trousers where used and white socks from cots ,but white actionman football socks would of worked equally as well finished off with 40th german boots acting as sea boots .obviously a naval officer needs bino's and he also holds a signal lamp
This was all modelled on a painted head figure that I have flocked and thought he would be older salty ol dog of the sea and gave him hair to match I also swapped over the hands for grippers
although I have utilized a couple of Cotswold bits ,namely jumper and socks and a gi joe coat ,I believe it follows the ethos of palitoy !

Fantastic custom bash Jay.

You've really captured the Palitoy house style with it too. Had there been a VAM Naval officer it would've looked just like that!

I did a similar one to this but yours is far better. I really like the duffel coat look and if you don't mind i may copy the idea for another bash.
