Another one for August. A good figure where the parts fit well. I like the head. Very nice. It comes with a base but I didn't for the pics. Straps made from tape were added to the helmet which btw have the white ace of spades ( hidden from view in my pics ) thoughtfully in place and ready to paint. I always thought US Airborne wore a lighter colored uniform, something like tan or light OD but the box art and painting guide indicate otherwise. The manufacturer's reference is from well known books so I won't argue with that or risk getting it wrong. The boots are also not the regular Airborne type I'm used to. Anyone care to share more info on paratrooper uniforms and gear during the Battle Of The Bulge? The molded divisional patch was sanded away and in its place is an Archer transfer. Just plain lazy to paint it on ( smile ).
