Hi all ,

            Here is My Marine RTO ( Radio Telephone Operator ) . He has taken the place of my previous RTO who has rotated home . Very Happy  I have another in the making , but will likely be a while before he shows up for active duty .

   Along with Officers , Medics and M.60 Gunners , RTO`s were prime targets for the NVA and Vietcong . After all they could call in artillery and air support along with Medevacs ect . Most RTO`s tried to hide the fact they were carrying radios , often carrying the radio inside a pack , and as here bending the areal over , some bent it round in half into a loop , though this method could cause snags on the bush . The RTO`s were pretty much on the officers heels , normally an L.T . Along with the radio , they still had to carry a rifle , ammo and gear to survive in the bush . The long pouch strapped to the side of his pack frame , contains a long range areal . Strapped to the other side is a Gas mask bag , these were often used to carry other stuff instead of a Gasmask . I printed off a spare battery box , which sits between his Butt pack and Poncho . ( Thanks to Pickle Monkey from OSF for the print design )  . Like the hand set , this has been wrapped in polythene to keep out the damp and or dust  . A selection of Smoke grenades are hooked to the radio , these were used to show their position when calling in medevacs or air strikes . Scratch made note book and pencil , and printed map . Hope you like him .

The figure is of course truly wonderful, ...another product of your obviously intensive research and serious attention to all the little details that make all your works really come to life.
SO well done!

Amazing level of detail! Hours of research, and even more hours of custom crafting! Another museum quality figure worthy of a historical exhibit!

Time sure does go quickly in our hobby. Your get though all these half finished projects bit by bit Chip. When you do get though all these many half finished projects I’ll be looking forward to seeing them.
