Here is my 2nd NAM Marine RTO , he is fully loaded as you can see . I got the inspiration from the cover photo of a book I was reading . I suppose if your living out of a bag for days on end , and stuff can make a difference to life or death you carried it . He does look tired doesn't he ? My figure is carrying attached to his ruck , the radio , claymores , a poncho , two spare batteries for the radio , an E-tool , torch , extended antenna kit , bayonet and scabbard and a couple of Smoke Grenades . His pockets are likely full of cartridges for the Ithaca M37 Shotgun . This was a SOTW item , I don`t think they are an easy pick up now , but I took the risk of repainting it , and think it looks o.k . On his belt is a 45 and holster , and general issue kit . Consider what would of been inside his ruck too , a fair amount of weight to be carried in the humid heat of Vietnam . First photo is the one I worked from .

It's just like he stepped out of the original photo Mark!
Uncanny!

Uncanny!

That was my first thought as well! Shocked The second and third pics, in B&W, I thought at first glance were more angles of the real photo you worked from! You are nailing the realism!

Your repaint of the shotgun looks fantastic! Again, looks like the real deal!

You have an eye for detail and the dexterity and model-making chops to bring these figs to life!

Everybody has said what I intended to say, I guess all I can say is I agree!

The shotgun looks real, along with the rest of the figure.

And the photos are great!

Stunning work again Chip! He looks spot on, as does that repaint on the shotgun bounce . I really like how you got his packs to match the picture, brilliant work, as always cheers cheers .

Just open your own 'Nam Museum?
You've already got superb exhibits I'd pay to see!
