My desert Tommies, just waiting for the Afrika Korps to show their faces.

The two guys with helmets use kit from the Long Range Desert Group set, with the addition of British Infantryman helmets. I hesitate to call them kitbashes as they are essentially LRDG uniforms with helmets in place of the head dress.

The only non-Hasbro/Palitoy kit, is the officer's scarf and the Lee Enfield rifle, both of which are by Cotswold Collectibles. I actually prefer their Lee Enfield to the Palitoy one as it comes with the more realistic looking elastic strap instead of Palitoy's rubber one.

I love this scarf and I've used it in lots of kitbashes. It's a Cotswold repro of the Action Man Go Kart Driver's scarf, but it's great for military officer 'bashes too. Smile

The officer is wearing the shirt and pants form a GI Joe Desert Jeep Driver and the neck covering is the bottom half of a French Foreign Legion kepi covering, which I had spare after I modified one for this kitbash...

I'm a great believer in never throwing any fragments of kit away, not even the bottom of a kepi cover! Smile

Reminiscent of Rat Patrol on television back in the day... back in the day when TV shows were awesome and GI Joe / Action Man ruled the sandbox deserts!
