    Nice reissue.

    The Kilgore character was in turn based on a real-life Air Cav officer, whose name for the moment escapes me.

    Hi, Steve
    I believe the officer in question was LTC John Stockton who commanded the 1st Squadron, 9th Cav when they trained up at Ft Benning and then deployed to Vietnam. Attached is a photo of a conversion of the L&L bust to represent "Bull Whip 6" (his radio callsign), modifying the jungle fatigues, name strip, etc. Bust and photo now several years old.

    So sorry pal. No UK distributor/Stockist. It's way too expensive to ship to EU in large quantities via USPS. Between the shipping costs, VAT, and Duties it's not worth it for the distributor to buy since all these take away from the profit they would make.

    I ship all over the world. I can ship USPS First Class International for reasonable price under 3 lbs.

    Get in touch with me if you want any of the figures or busts.

    Cheers

    So sorry mate, but I don't make the postage rules, it's the USPS fault. They ship everything by air now and it's not cheap. I used to be able to send a small package via sea for $5.00 USD, now same package is $15.00+. It's really hurting my business and no stockist/distributor wants to pay the high shipping costs from USA to carry my products.

    It stinks, but then that's life I guess.

    Hi Julian

    A new model to the market of a previously released piece

    It's crying out for legs as well IMO would make a great full figure as well

    Happy benchtime

    Stay safe

    Hi, it's an interesting and nice job. The irony of fate is that at the same time we were working on the same topic. See Mitches Military Models.
    Good luck whit this piece.
