My fave out of all the vam sets, because it conjures up images of saboteur commandos doing daring night-time raids in WW2.

Some folks put the beret on back to front, there's an example in one of my Modellers Loft 40th catalogue posters lol!

If England had been invaded by the Nazis in WW2 we would have had ERF (English Resistance Fighters). FRFs remind me of the SAS.

In WW2, the FRF also helped our downed RAF pilots and prison-camp escapees make it back to blighty, the FRF provided a clever 'escape network' that was undetectable by the enemy, they also provided important enemy troop movement intel to England via special codes.

Nice repaint on those eyes, Brian! and great figure too.

Hey, it isn't often I get to participate in one of these featured figure threads. Mine is the G. I. Joe/Hasbro version. I also was told my beret was back to front and now I can never remember which way it's supposed to be scratch

Nice selection of photos, chaps Cool

I especially like Brian's 30th MAM FRF, i have a few of the 30ths buried somewhere, i haven't seen them for years Embarassed


gibri,

You have the beret on the correct way, nice Joe.


I'm trying to find some of my FRF photos at the moment, there's tons of photo folders to look through on my black box, i've caused my database to become confused lol! As soon as i find them i will post them up, they are oldies, i think i have enough extra loose FRF style gear to put another 3/4 together.

Definitely, those brown MAM jackets have many uses in kitbashes. I am always looking out for them, i have a fair amount of them now, i think a sleeveless one would also look good on a FRF. My photo above is actually older than 2012, it was taken in 2010, i just checked th original EXIF data, i updated the photo in 2012 with a new copyright. Doesn't time fly.

Thought I  had better get mine in , bit last minute , ........well not really as that would have been 23:59 lol! lol! lol!
in my defence I have been working didn't have any pics as I have only just put these three guys together !
I always thought the French resistance fighter a bit incomplete ,so decided they each should have an individually styled leather coat for those long operations !

Jay,

I'm liking your FRF team Cool Cool  Those jackets look excellent. Palitoy should have done similar jackets back in the day on a separate card as an accessory/upgrade to the FRF set.



Nice one Thierry,

It's good to see another MAM brown jacket being used in the world of vam/Joe.

Great photos everyone,


French Urban Commandos of WW2.

The French resistance were masters of sabotage in WW2, they disrupted the enemy communications and supply lines on roads and railways.

They played a major part in the run up to D-Day by supplying intel of enemy troop strength and movements to the allied forces.



They also had a network that helped downed RAF and allied pilots escape back to England.




French resistance partisans fought alongside Allied troops to retake their cities (staged Photo)

The first Action Man set on the top of my wants list when i was a kid, was the FRF set, it's still my favourite set today.
