Nice to meet another VN historian. I started on a impression in late 07... I've got just about everything, including a real M-16A1 Colt 603.
I'm the Captain on the right. DragonCon 08
On the Left..
This was at the Ren Fair last year.
This was an earlier picture, before I got the flack jacket
And here's my rifle. I built it up from all original colt parts, except the lower is a reproduction and all the internal lower parts and BCG are new. Fires great!
And here's the real one next to the Airsoft I use when at Cons, etc.
TD-1536 - man those pics are sweet. How do you get on wearing your flak jacket? Do you wear it on patrols?
Lovin the M16, its the dogs nuts (mine is only blank firing)
Nice to see the Air Cav badge as well
Very good pics you guys
Currently, the three guys you see are those in my 501st Garrison. I've not reached out to gather more troops for our group, but Vietnam reenacting seems to be gaining in popularity around these parts. But, I still don't know how I feel about doing that sort of thing and haven't taken any steps to get involved.
Glad you only got your flak vesy for $80m, I ended up paying just over $300 (import duties from the States ), but like you I love it (my flak jacket and my lid are my fav bits of kit). Oh and the M16
Looking good Jon! Love this kind of thing.
I went out this weekend with my snipers kit.

Ooh coolness. I love being sniper when I play Battlefield : Bad Company! Sadly that's as far as any military leanings go for me.
Hey Ronin, any updates on the Chewie? I'm subscribed to both of these threads, and would like to know if anything has been done on the Wookie?
