I have been re-making my Vietnam Grunts/figures & sourcing in pieces here & there. Even the famous sarge is getting a face lift. Here's the 1st one finished. The accessories are getting harder to find, that much I know. I hope you enjoy how he's turned out.

Let's see how long it takes his knees to give out with all the weight he's carrying. Hope you enjoy the images.

He looks the business Ade!

I remember your Nam grunts from way back -- great work!!! They're still around here somewhere.

Must be a bit of trouble trying to put them back together again, but fun and rewarding all the same.

Outstanding work on this fella!!!

Brian
