Second mirage pilot, stepping out, by Reedoak

Great stuff, as always Norbert!  Any chance of seeing a USN/USMC helo crew with the visor down?

I will do a in flight crew. However, the clear visor on top of helmet will be plain grey resin, you will have to paint it helmet colour (white or camo like here) and put a relatively thick layer of gloss warnish on top.

I want the WW2 deck crew, please! Is the guy with the chocks post-war?

No I'm sorry, he has the current outfits. But I have the WW2 deck crew uniform on loan here...

 

here is the modern deck crew with aircraft wheel chock :

Can we get some World War II u.s. Navy and Marine Corps without a shirt and shorts on we can use them for a lot of different aircraft in the South Pacific including Air Force

I'd still like to see some plain USMC/USN Vietnam ground/flight crew standing around (plane captains and ordies), either with the muffs on or off ears. I'd like one of these relatively simple posed guys as a single figure to add some scale to the model.

 

Some examples....

Great news! It is possible to just do one visor though. I never flew with two visors, only the dark one. I knew lots of crewmen that did this as well.

Many thanks, I never have enough pics of crews for my ref.

Now to find what type of headset or ear protection we find here...
