First time posting though I've been doing 1/18 stuff for a while. Mostly interested in making accurate (to the real world) military customs. Anyway, this is a custom (repaint) of the BBI NBC figure in a Gulf War era MOPP suit. No specific branch in mind.

Man, that takes me right back to the news broadcasts during Desert Shield. Fantastic accuracy and something I have never seen done before. Definitely want to see more of your work.

Not sure the suppressed MP5 suits the Gulf War common soldier all that well. Maybe an M16A2. Otherwise, excellent!

Thanks all! And yes, the m16A2 is definitely more accurate. I guess I was thinking about the SEALs like Howard Wasdin's book SEAL Team Six: Memoirs of an Elite Navy SEAL Sniper although in retrospect SEALs operating in Iraq would've had CAR-15s, not suppressed MP5s. Not sure what they wore though.
