Hi

 

Looks like déjà vu, but this time it is a vietnam/post vietnam war era deck crew standing, hands in avionics bay. He wears the blue jeans dungaree, the old type lifepreserver without chest pocket, the old type goggles, etc...

Also, in the above scene, there are actually two types of "yellow vests".

 

In this photo, there are pilots, aircraft directors, and general deck hands.

 

The aircraft directors, who have the white head-covers as well, their vests are yellow are for safety, visibility, and for the pilot's need to quickly identify him.

 

The air-crew members' vests, which are also yellow are also a flotation device, is being worn by the man on the right without the white head-cover.

 

To go with my big Trumpeter SBD, I would like each and all the figures shown, including the seated pilot and gunner and the officer in the foreground as well as the handlers, different hats and all.
