Here is a figure (bust) done in plastic of a 1st infantry division radio operator some time during the vietnam war. Any comments advice or other thoughts are welcomed.

Great model  subject matter.  RTOs had a tough job trying to keep up with Platoon Leader, CO whomever, and still keeping all channels on line.

 

Thanks for sharing.
