Hi Guys

Been "out and about" recently ( Work ! , elderly Mum's and Mum in Laws needing attention and a quick break to 'belle France')

I'll be updating with some work I've been getting on with in the background .

To get us started here are some "Thank goodness Gunner has sorted us out with some proper grippers !!"

Gunner Munro's collection.  - Page 11 IMG-2665
Sgt Joe, the grizzled GI Joe Squad leader of the Munrovian 50ths has his. He debated if he wanted a pair of vintage pinchers back but decided he needed to lead from the front. "Gunner its 2019 not 1967 !!"

"This is amazing- now we are ready for action to kick Dragonian butt in the 2019 Campaign season !"

Gunner Munro's collection.  - Page 11 IMG-2664

"Now I can carry the Ammo can - Watch out Volgans - I'll be introducing my other  Squad mates soon- a new Squad !"

Gunner Munro's collection.  - Page 11 IMG-2663

"Tres Bien Gunner ! Get on wiz ze search of the rest or of Uniform on Ze E-bay!"

Take care
Gunner

Are those Foreign Legion hats custom wrapped in fabric? They're totally cool! I need to re-do all my standard Joe caps!

PostSubject: New Arrivals...   Gunner Munro's collection.  - Page 11 Icon_minitimeThu Jun 27, 2019 9:56 pm

Hi folks
I've recently started to transplant a few other A&S budget range heads over onto ChadValley/World Peacekeeper bodies.

Blonde ( my first Action Pilot from 1966 and holder of a set of Gold Tom Dog Tags) and Major Morgan of the training team meet Flight Lieutenant Bronze after his inaugural flight.

Gunner Munro's collection.  - Page 11 IMG-3449

Gunner Munro's collection.  - Page 11 IMG-3450

So Bronze how did she handle ?

Gunner Munro's collection.  - Page 11 IMG-3451

Well sir, I got 30 mins in her.. bit chilly though without a cockpit cover !

Blonde: I'll get Gunner to put an E_bay cit in..

Gunner Munro's collection.  - Page 11 IMG-3454

Major Morgan- How did the lastest issue flight helmet handle? - Good Comms?

Bronze: Yes sir and the 'shute was fine too.- Why don't you try the helmet on for size? I hear you piloted for Action Man Air Corp back in the day

Gunner Munro's collection.  - Page 11 IMG-3455

Major Morgan: Yes, mainly Choppers and Pursuit Craft with the odd Turbo 'Copter foray

Gunner Munro's collection.  - Page 11 IMG-3456

Blonde: I don't like this flight suit though Bronze - far too flimsy - I'll put in a request for set of classic Pilot overalls at the very least !

Gunner Munro's collection.  - Page 11 IMG-3453

Morgan: Any Transplant issues ?

Gunner Munro's collection.  - Page 11 IMG-3452

Bronze : No sir, all good the Gorilla Super Glue Gel has worked wonders and I'm getting used to being a bit "bulked up"-should go down well with the ladies !

Gunner Munro's collection.  - Page 11 IMG-3458

Welcome !... and hopefully the start of the fledgling Munrovian Air Corps.

Gunner Munro's collection.  - Page 11 IMG-3459

Now then ...where did I leave my aviators ?....

Mean while at a river beach...
Gunner Munro's collection.  - Page 11 IMG-3460

Sailor  Dan disembarks.
Gunner Munro's collection.  - Page 11 IMG-3463

I wonder when Bronzey will miss these bad boys ?

Sailor Dan also has a MAM beret to replace his standard basic issue on- Thanks to ASckie 88 aka Prof Gangrene fan for that. Its one of the best AM berets IMO

He has been trying On Dreadnoughts Cap for Size
Gunner Munro's collection.  - Page 11 IMG-3464

Dan has had a grade 2 transplant ( Glue line !! Embarassed Embarassed ) but he still thinks he look quite rugged lol!

Gunner Munro's collection.  - Page 11 IMG-3466

Gunner Munro's collection.  - Page 11 IMG-3465

D2 joins Dan..
Gunner Munro's collection.  - Page 11 IMG-3467

D2-Thinks " A bit too blonde, no beard  and way too good looking for my liking .. I need to introduce him to Hank PDQ  for a "Don't get too big for your boots" beer and chat ...

Thanks for looking- I've just spotted some more Basic soldiers for £10 so aim to get a small squad together.
Cheers Gunner

Hmmm...Cliff has some concerns about the calibre of some of the new recruits but has the upmost faith that the top brass at GM HQ will knock them into shape.

Hank already considers himself the answer to a Barbie's dreams so cutting a pretty boy new recruit down to size will be a pleasure!

PostSubject: VAM Garden and Strongpoint update.. Lockdown bonus    Gunner Munro's collection.  - Page 11 Icon_minitimeSat Apr 11, 2020 4:39 pm

Hi fellow Lockdown travellers,

There has got to be some benefits  to spending more time at home .. chance to get stuck into those , oh I must get around to.. projects ? Shocked  Very Happy  

So some of you may remember this post from  a couple of years back ?

[quote="Gunner Munro"]Hi Guys,
Mrs G has let me have a patch of the garden for VAM - so cleared away the shrubs etc and transplanted elsewhere around the Munrovian "estate". Shocked

So the area is from the shed down to the tree.
Gunner Munro's collection.  - Page 11 IMG_7555

Can't move this Honeysuckle but will help blend out the fence..

Gunner Munro's collection.  - Page 11 IMG_7557

Will move this bush eventually...
Gunner Munro's collection.  - Page 11 IMG_7558

I may even be able to take over this area  too ! but baby steps first...

Gunner Munro's collection.  - Page 11 IMG_7559

So started to lay out some 1/6th scale stuff to judge how best to use it...
Gunner Munro's collection.  - Page 11 IMG_7532

Gunner Munro's collection.  - Page 11 IMG_7535

Gunner Munro's collection.  - Page 11 IMG_7533

Yes I know ... will I ever build the strong point ... but I'm taking inspiration from Dean Aka Sam Goldwyn Rusty Gun Cool  and now I have sorted out the garage - I even have a summer workstation to "crack on " from .

Gunner Munro's collection.  - Page 11 IMG_7534

I've even got the wood - just need to find that cup of motivation...

So my ultimate aim is to install what my US buddies would call a Pondless waterfall . Well actually I want to create a stream that emerges from behind the tree- Action Man and water !- and runs to roughly where the Strong point house is ... but as I said baby steps- I am after all DIY "Challenged" .

UPDATE SHOTS

So Mrs Gunner wanst a new Lady Shed - so the corner of the garden has been dug up
Gunner Munro's collection.  - Page 11 IMG-6040

Brilliantly that meant to make best use of the spoil, rescue plants etc etc that Mission VAM garden could accelerate.

Had to dig out an old root from a Eucalyptus  tree.
Gunner Munro's collection.  - Page 11 D283-D19-B-2343-4491-9402-97-AA4388-B8-E2

I went to B&Q to get first set of supplies - just before lockdown so now need to queue to get on their Website for a 10 mins slot to get some finishing bits and bobs Shocked
Gunner Munro's collection.  - Page 11 404-A0-AD0-80-AA-40-BB-96-FD-EFA22-D3-CDCAE

Some final concept layouts

Phase1

Phase 2

Gunner Munro's collection.  - Page 11 IMG-6045

Tomorrow I'll get the Strongpoint out and assess what I can do to push that on too.

First off it’s just fabulous to seeing a update from yourself Gunner Wink. I’m so very pleased that Mrs G has let you have a patch of the garden for VAM.

Gunner Munro's collection.  - Page 11 F40-E536-C-531-B-43-AF-ABA3-0-ACB510-B0-B51
Looking forward to seeing this being finished and seeing it being used in your action packed stories in the future Gunner.

Keep us updated on the progress please.

So the raised bed garden area will be the Action Man battleground?

The Strongpoint has certainly evolved from its cardboard beginnings! Looking brilliant thus far!

I hope you'll have the opportunity to keep working on (and expanding) this project! Although it seems you'll be busy with a 1:1 scale build for a while, though! (If you can get the supplies!)

I really like the grey Jeep in the earlier pics. Is that a 21st Century / Ultimate Soldier release?

I know just shows what a global pandemic can do Shocked lol! I'll get some of the Top Brass out tomorrow to carry to some inspections Rolling Eyes

Me and my mates spent hours and hours with Arifix 1/32nd soldiers and a 12 inch ruler playing HG Wells Little wars - I would have totally wet myself if a 1/6th scale Strongpoint had been available at the time lol!
