I based this figure on Sean Flynn , he is the son of the famous actors Errol Flynn and his wife  Lili Damita . He followed his parents in a career of acting , but became bored of it , and ended up as a freelance journalist for Time Magazine working on the Vietnam conflict . In search of new and different photos , Sean was said to of travelled with Special Forces units , often into remote areas . In 1970 , Sean and fellow photographer Dana Stone went on an assignment into Cambodia , they were sadly never seen again , and it`s believed they were captured by the Vietcong but later fell into the hands of the Khmer Rouge , a communist organisation in Cambodia .

Very cool fig! Possibly my favorite among your customs!
And an interesting story. I did not know Errol Flynn had a son.

Nice work Chip!
With the mustache he reminds me a little of Doc Hock!

Chip, I never cease to be amazed at the magnificent quality and the fine detail of your work.
Your figures take on a personality of their own that sets them apart.

I agree with LeStryge, the detail of your work never ceases to amaze!

That is a great figure, and a sad story. There are many sad stories that came out of 'Nam.
A lot of journalists died there.

May I ask what headsculpt/figure you used? I have another project in mind that I think
it might work with.

Oh ... Thank you so much for all those kind comments , was not expecting such a great response thank you . bounce

Sorry Daryl , I can not help you out much , but it is a Dragon figure , and quite old now . The moustache is added / painted on , I think I might of painted his hair too , so likely looks nothing like he did .  If I find out , I will let you know .

Thanks Sarah , I had to look up Doc Hock , great series especially the first one or two episodes , I can see what your saying .

Thanks so much for the other kind comments all . They are very uplifting . Wink

What did you use to model the moustache before painting?

Yes, that's what I use, but just thought you may have another idea. Thanks!
