D Day Special, pt. 2

Continuing with the the US D Day theme as promised, our next subject is a 101st Airborne paratrooper.  Like the previous entry, this guy is a "neo-retro" GI Joe style figure. In this case, the entire figure was produced some years ago (early 2000s?) by Cotswold. The one change I had to make was replacing his rifle, a folding stock M1 carbine, with an item from 21st Century Toys after two cast metal   Cotswold rifles broke in transit.

A couple of close ups of our trooper's headsculpt and face up. You'll notice the Mohawk haircut and warpaint worn by some units of the 101st Airborne.

Finally, a few "in action" shots:

I realized there are no actual German soldiers for this guy to fight against. The closest thing I have are my East German-inspired troops but that wouldn't really work. Oh well!

A bonus "buddy" shot with infantry sergeant Joe from the previous entry:
