A frenzy of de carding later - Chris & Alan survey the kit.

Alan; " This is amazing , by mixing and matching with that Special Forces Medic kit we have two sets of gear- look at all these pouches !!

Hi Ralph,
I got them from an e-bay seller. I asked him and he told me they they are Dragon in Dreams gear. They are £15 card currently on Modellers Loft.

https://www.modellersloft.co.uk/modern/dragon-in-dreams/us-army-combat-uniform-item-no-e60051.html


Buy chance I had a Uni from the Special Forces figures . Here is the link to one on Amazon. Ignore the price . If you get on e-bay you can get them for about £15 - free post direct from China !! Shocked

https://www.amazon.co.uk/12-Special-Forces-Action-Figure/dp/B00FOIMWT0

I think they are a really good buy to supplement VAM and a great source of spare hands, feet and arms lol!

I'm going to have to order some up in Q1 after the shock of the Xmas credit card bill Shocked Laughing Laughing

Hope you had a great Xmas Very Happy
