Dersert ‘Britz’ – well I was recalling that famous WWII era unit called the ‘Desert Rats’ which was the 7th Armoured Division of the British. Well the unit was already disbanded on 1958 so I guess they were not around during the Gulf War.
Anyways my focus on this kitbash is the helmet. This 1/6 scale British MK6 kevlar helmet is by Dragon DML which I then wrapped with the Hot Toys desert DPM camo helmet cover with rubber rim.
The Dragon DML MK6 helmet is better proportioned compared to the Hot Toys, accomodating any 1/6 scale headsculpt size.
I have no British 1/6 scale weaponry so I get to use temporarily this US M60 machine gun from Hot Toys. The Load Bearing Vest is from ACE from it’s Rifleman vest set. Still a lot to update for this one to be accurate as a modern British soldier.
Parts breakdown: British DPM Parka and pants – Hot Toys / boots – Soldier Story / Scarf Shemagh – Hot Toys / Body – BBI 3.5 body.
