    Thanks for looking.
    My version of Bravo 6's Vietnam helicopter pilot. a bit out of my comfort zone as far as knowledge goes but he's so cool I couldn't resist. I've changed the head for a bit more character, and added the sun glasses (having put glasses on 2 figures I now feel qualified to have a go at brain surgery).
    Sorry for the rotten photos.

    Outstanding, Red Team. Outstanding. Get you a case of beer for that one!

    I have the Andrea 54mm one, which is very similar. I don't usually do "Hollywood" stuff, but as you say, a character that's too cool to resist.

    Thanks for looking. Calling it a day on this one, I've gone for a very simple base copied from a photo I found online.
