    1st Air Cav bust Vietnam sculpted by Carl Reid & produced by SK Miniatures, this is something I've been wanting to do for some time to give me a chance at having a figure submerged in swamp water up to his waist, with lots of jungle foliage around him, I know this has been done before with this particular figure & posted on PF (apologies can't remember who done it) but just want to have a go with the water effect etc,
    I've changed his face from the smile he had to a more determined looking expression, I've also changed the position of his left arm & hand to be holding the M16, as if to be swiping some tall reeds to one side with the barrel of his M16, also built up the "missing part of the Alice pack so that once the figure is complete it'll be able to be viewed from all directions.
    So for once I'm keeping this Half figure/bust as such with no Legs ;)

    Cheers(y)
    Jim
