    Absolutely superb mate. Great job on the ERDL cam on the shirt. Love the sweat and the red dirt.

    Wonderful to see you sharing your art here Al.
    An authentic looking Viet Digger I reckon :)
    Especially like extra details on the base.

    Thanks for sharing & what's the next project mate?

    very much like that - is that a scratchbuilt sculpt? or is it available - I have always wanted Aussie SAS figures - thought Firestorm and Bravo 6 were the only ones I'd be able to get.

    Superb!

    Hi Adrian
    This is a 1/6 scale bust by Naked-Army very reasonably priced as well , and beautifully sculpted pieces, i have made a slight change to the scrim around the neck on this one , have a look at their website

    www.na-int.com/

    They have some wonderful busts and full figure bronzes on their website as well as khaki-army for US military figures
    Cheers

    Alan Mackie has asked me to upload some more recent pics of his Naked Army Australian SAS bust to show you, which have been washed and weathered. He also forgot to mention that the two medal ribbons ( the Australian Vietnam medal and the Vietnamese medal awarded by the South Vietnamese government ) and the Infantry combat badge the SAS men on the base were awarded for service in Vietnam.
