That soldier is ready to spend some time in the field.

And to defend himself if necessary.

Let's hope defending himself is not necessary, and that it's more like a camping trip than a combat mission.

  The pouches and Canteen covers are dragons original plastic versions . However , I have , I feel gave them a better look , by covering them in sports tape and re- painting . It`s quite time consuming but therapeutic at the same time . They need a bit of weathering , but I think it worth the effort , what do you think ?

Nice new figures to add to your Viet Nam group!

I've heard of using the sports tape. It is a great improvement to the molded plastic.

Great work!!!

Navy SEAL  " Oscar " .

   I kitted out "Oscar " , for both prisoner snatches and assassinations , note the silenced Hush Puppy pistol . and also for more heavy ambush missions , note the Stoner M.G and LAW . To my knowledge the Stoner M.G  was only issued to Navy SEAL`s during the NAM . It could be assembled in various combinations , the most noticeable to include the length and the way the rounds were fed to the beast , this could include a drum magazine , a box magazine as here , or also I believe could be belt fed . Canteen carriers were often used as ammo carriers by S.F teams in the NAM as these could hold more magazines than standard pouches , especially for the weapons with longer magazines as here the captured AK47 .Again Oscar`s web gear has been given the sports tape treatment . See the Recon Marine post above for more details on this .

What an impressive pair of figures in these last two posts! The level of realistic detail is quite impressive.

The SEAL looks like a serious soldier with serious business to attend to. Intimidating, actually.

Excellent craftsmanship in assembling these.

Fantastic figure and great pics!

You've really added to your Nam collection. They all look great and I agree this is one of Dragon's best sculpts.

Impressive figure and a very nicely composed series of pics. Second photo is outstanding, with that "high alert" stance. The eyes are intense in the third pic.

The KOOL cigarette package is a great period-authentic detail.
