Your tips will be appreciated.

You have an ozzie SAS, great
Maybe weathering on face & hands. Give him that in country look. Some stubble. Or even give him a face camouflage make over. Plenty of images online for reference

Nice work so far. This is my special interest too. My main interest in terms of Vietnam War are LRRP, SOG and especially ASAS / NZSAS. Some tipps from me:

  • used ammo bandoleer is for M16 magazines. The L1A1 ones are to big for this. It would better to use an M16/M203 combo for that.
  • i would use an leightweight rucksack or ARVN style rucksack.
  • If possible try to get an Dragon FAL. They are a good start for an SAS Version. But it has to be converted a little bit.
  • Everything what makes noise has to be secured with tape.
    Therefore no loose metal canteens without cover and secured on the belt or rucksack.

Here are some photos i use for my Figures. I can highly recommen the book. Great photos and a lot of information about gear and weapons.

Thanx for the tips.
At the moment i just “trashed” the m16 ammo bandolier and the metal canteen.
Secured all grenades with tape.
I am waiting for an Arvn rucksack, i think it will arrive this coming week.

They also carried the linked belts inside rubber inner tubes, sometimes.
