"We were a Motley bunch", 11th ACR in Vietnam

"We were a Motley bunch" , quoted from a friend and fellow Cavalryman, who did two tours in Vietnam. His first tour was with 9th Cav, as a Aero Scout. His second tour was on the ground, with G Troop, 2nd Squadron, 11th Armored Cavalry Regiment, aka Black Horse.

I based this figure from conversations with him about his time with the Black Horse.


Still need to do some more weathering on the rucksack, now that I see it in pics.

Hope you like and thanks for looking.

Scouts Out!

Excellent looking figure! The weathering on the boots is especially realistic.
On a personal note, are you planning on attending the 4th Annual GIJoe Show in Arlington, Texas in March?

Thanks Top & Jfunk.

Enough ammo? Hell, thats what the track was for, to carry all that


jfunk, yeah brother, I am. You?
I made it to last years, busted my 1/6 convention cherry there, and looking forward to it this year. Hopefully get to meet up with some 1/6'ers there.

Braverifles,
I am planning to be there. I was at the last one and had a blast also. Hopefully I will be able to finally meet in person some of the names I know from the various 1/6 boards.
