I'm exploring the somewhat mysterious contents of the U.S. Specialists pack from the Charlie Company 20mm Vietnam War range. While the range is still available, this pack is no longer in production, and I was unable to get further information about these figures from the manufacturer.

U.S. Specialists

In our previous episode, we looked at army dogs. This time, we have these figures – what do you think they are?

U.S. Specialist

There are two of these poses in the pack.

The figures were painted for TMP by Fernando Enterprises, a professional painting service.

U.S. Specialists

When the figures came back from Sri Lanka, I based them on 1" blank metal strike plates, and flocked the bases.

U.S. Specialists

The figure appears to have a pistol in his left hand, and a loop of chain or rope in his right hand.

When I looked at these pictures, I was alarmed to see what looked like paint chips on the hats. However, upon checking the actual figures, there is nothing wrong! Just an odd reflection from the photography lights. grin

What Kind of Specialist Is This?
