Esci & Valiant Miniatures

I sometimes mix figures from different companies, because people come in different sizes.  However, the equipment is all the same size.

This is the Valiant Miniatures US Army soldier with the head from the Esci hard plastic figure.  Reminds me of Littlejohn from Combat! the old TV show.

I cut down the length of the M1 rifle barrel. 

I also trimmed down the end of the rifle butt.

That way his helmet and rifle would be the same size as the Esci soldier.

Here he is with a Plastic Soldier Company US Army soldier.  A large corn fed guy from the heartland of America.  Thanks to my friend COL Jim for providing the Valiant Miniatures soldier.
