Ok forum - your chance to shape the figures that Phil will sculpt !

We need images posted on line of US infantry and Marines in winter wear, for 1950.1951 and 1952

That's M43 jacket, the pile caps and the famous Parka. The early Parka is WW2 pattern with a belt(often removed) and shirt pockets. It was also light tan as opposed to the later M1951 which was field green.   Web is worn below the Parka.

The wisdom is the earlier model could function as a 1944/45 proxy.

In the images I have sent to Phil, the Parka hood appears often worn inside the helmet - the Argentines did the same in 92.  Was it ever worn outside the helmet?

Look forward to what you source.  Good poses will be awarded with a sculpt ! Sad

Oooh! oooh! Can I have mine on a Centurion?

I've just googles Chosin Reservoir, so mostly  Marines 1950

If not a Centurion, I'd appreciate a MG team on the move like on the right, here. (i.e. not prone.  Angry)

Thanks, Nobby.

I think I'll probably go for the Michelin Man in M43 jackets, look.
The guys in the extra long coats.....Hmmmm....A bit waffy as a 10mm sculpt....I believe they'll come out as just a bit too blobby....But I'll be guided by Sir.

You could just do the guy in the blanket. You would have him finished in 30 seconds!

 Undecided
In an ideal World, I could do variations 'on a theme'.......Do one lot...then convert them....But that just means more outlay for Leon, for possibly not much return.
(Could always do something further down the road if there's a real call for them.)

I'll hang fire for a couple of days and see what the score is from Sir, James, and yourselves.

Cheers - Phil.

July 1951 - but an interesting shot nonetheless. RCL go "BOOM!"


Lost more photos in overcoats and parkas. Just saying.  Angry

Outstanding Nobby.  Thank you.   Thumbs up     I have recommended to the Head Shed that we keep to shorter Parkas and the layer type dress based around the M43.  This has loads of proxy applications way beyond Korea.
