The figures are an Action Man, Geyperman and vintage Joe; but since since these came from Britain; this seemed the best place to post.

After transferring the airborne badge from my Geyperman green beret to a VAM red para beret, I realized that it would need a new badge. I also had a black VAM beret and a modern Joe beret that needed badges. The green beret became Royal Marine headgear; while the black VAM beret and modern Joe beret were assigned to the Royal Artillery and Welsh Guards, respectively.

The badges themselves are amazing. Very high quality. They arrived from the UK in less than a week! My paint job probably let them down. I painted them all gold; apologies for the inaccuracies. I've never painted detailed objects before.

I highly recommend Mr. Barton's badges!!

Perfect!!!! Top work on the painting Nate, they look authentic and very special in that colour, they also look like metal cheers

Berets when found are normally missing their badges, but at least there's a cottage industry for replacements cheers
