PostSubject: SOTC/W Squad starts to assemble...   Sun Feb 05, 2017 5:57 pm

I've just started to get the Munrovian Soldiers of the Century/World Squad
together.

I'm sure there will be some operational tensions between the sections but the Dragonians must be overcome !!



The Legionnaires and the Brits eye each other up :



"Sacre Blu .Thats not a SOT/W Uni !!"

"I'm waiting for the Aussie Jungle fighter gear to get sorted !"

"yeah we are behind the Jerries and their operational status - we can't get left behind !"



Action Man Germans
Panzer Captain - our time has come ! - We will use DiD kit until we source Vintage - Watch the Tommys like hawks Vorwarts !March !!



Brit Tommies
"Gunner will need to sort out our Uni's if we want to look as smart!"

"Lets hope he managed to source some Thompson's instead of those Rubbish Sten Guns !"

These chaps will take a bit longer to get operational , especially the FFL guys Rolling Eyes lol!

Thanks folks for the comments. Smile

Jet, I'm rather embarrassed to say how much year 1 drew me in ... as soon as I got a PayPal account it was curtains Shocked Shocked

I've just over 200 VAM ( I think I started with about 30- 9 originals and a Nic stash from a car boot in '86,) a nice little collection of 30 or usable MAM and a growing number of Max Steels to create the evil Draconian invading force . Max has a great body sculpt/articulation just a bobbins headsculpt. Shocked Shocked

As you will have seen from my collection note- `I'm playing vs collecting - Just want to build decent squad size- something I never could do as a kid ( I blame the catalogue shots !!) and like Steve AKA SomeKindaJoe- I'm enjoying building a Uniformity look & feel to the squads

I'm on a bit of Figure buying lul at the moment as I catch up with my self.- Need to spend some time on the baddies ! lol! lol!

I'm so glad that some folks celebrate MAM now, they look really good in their outfits along with vam. Those flight jackets were always on my hunt lists.

If you ever find bits of paint on MAM it can be rubbed off with a damp dishcloth and your fingernails, give it a good hard rub and the paint will lift, if not use very fine and blunted wet and dry rubbing paper with water.

I'll try that out as some of the guys definitely have biro /paint or such on them.I guess the Oxy10 zit cream will also work?

Hi Ackkie and Clivvers

You may need to have a strong drink as you read this -- but I hope you don't mind too much - Its just me wanting to have a as may MAM & VAM in active service !!
as you know I've been a bit ambivilent to MAM. However I'm convinced they can play a part in the Munrovian ranks .

I've been doing a bit of a stock take and took the plunge to finally sort out the 'Barbie' MAM's I have and the stock of Max Steels I've built up last year (  Its the result of fuzzy collecting goals lol! lol! )

Anyway if you love your MAM you may want to look away now !!

So it started with the thought that those MAM heads could be put to better use ?

Also SomeKindaJoe challenged me to start sorting out the Dragonians - so that process is well underway -A mass attack in the garden some time in high summer is the target  

So here is the aftermath

Just a couple of MAM heads & a couple of Knock off looking for a suitable hosts ( some CHAD Valley chaps are in the garage locked in a vice waiting some 'alterations '- cue maniac Frankenstein type cackle)



The resulting outcome - a bit like a scene from the French revolution !





The final act will be to cut off the hands to act as emergency hands for any future alterations.



The transplants onto various hosts . Mainly Max Steels-I used SparkleBudgies post on this as my starting point.

Dragonians - the Dr X's will make key command figures Cool



The guys at the back left are on some Lannard bodies due to the size  of the head -  MAM  seemed to have a phase where DR X was 'outsize " as were some of the MAM too.

A bit Muscle Beach, but these guys look OK re neck's I feel.



'Big head' MAM's on Max Steels and some 21C bodies- a little bit 'no neck' but I'm glad to have them back on active service as part of the wider Action Man family.



So now the kitting out challenge begins ! I've given myself the goal of using as much of my existing spares before dipping into e-bay Shocked lol!

I'll keep you posted  Very Happy
ps Any one want some Max Steele heads  : lol!
