Modeling the U.S. Army in WWII


This winter MP wears the little seen double-breasted mackinaw, as well as gloves, OD pants with the large cargo pockets, and rubber four-buckle boots. He wears a toque around his head to keep warm, and has a spare first aid pouch on his helmet, typical of paratroopers. His arms are positioned to hold a rifle in front of him, but none is provided. He has no other equipment or ammo pouches.

The sculpting is adequate for a metal figure, and little cleanup is required. He’d be an appropriate figure at an Ardennes checkpoint, and since Belgo figures have been long out of production, he’d be quite unique in dioramas these days.
