Green boots, red caps and lizard camo.

I just finished another 1/72 scale unit, this time a full strength British airborne platoon. Did they really wear green boots?

Each unit, in addition to a sniper and five rifle armed infantry, has a Bren Gun, 2" mortar, and two NCOs with Sten Guns.

The 2' mortar, there seems to be some confusion as to the extent of use for this weapon, organization tables say that they had six rounds of ammo, bu these were all smoke. This is the PIAT gunner from the Revell set, PIAT trimmed off and another one cut to the right length and glued to the base.

My favorite figure from the set, one of my favorite figure of all time I think.
