A few weeks back, my wife and I went down to New York City for a few days. There happened to be a huge discount store across the street from our hotel that we browsed in. In the toy section I found a bunch of older DML figures. Well, multiples of one figure: the USAF Thunderbird pilot, LTC Brian Bishop. I mostly collect WWII stuff, but for $8, I got a decent HS and some items that I can spread around my collection. Since he's a pilot, (something I don't have in my collection) I decided to see if I could make a WWII aviator out of my spares box. Here's what I have so far. Enjoy!
