    I'm sure there will be an official announcement soon, but in the meantime here's something from Mitches... Enjoy

    I am wondering how difficult it would be to shave off the emblem at the front of the beret, and place a parachute Regiment wings...

    No word on price or if it comes with alternative head.

    You love it! I may just get this to do that. I'm thinking a bit of scrim at the neck as a Falklands War figure. Am kind of stuck on doing a Para with a maroon beret. The ammo belt needs a bit of work, too.

    An original sculpt from Maurice Corry. I'm not sure the original had the bergen, and it came with a head with Para helmet. The positioning of the stock of the GPMG on the outside of the elbow has been mentioned by those who used to carry one, as 'uncomfortable'.. I did some re-sculpting to fit the stock inside the elbow. It was also pointed out by those who were there, that the Para's rarely carried their Bergens, unlike the Commandos :cool::p. It's a Fantastic figure, I highly reccomend it. To tell the truth, I'm tempted, but I need to keep my wallet sweet for some other 'essential' purchases.. :(

    Here's one I did earlier...:cool:
