PostSubject: USMC Force Recon Kit (WIP) Thoughts?   Mon May 23, 2011 8:15 pm

Here's a few pics of my [very] WIP Force Recon kit. I'm shooting for an '09-2010 time frame.
I apologize for the Tru-Spec flightsuit, my Nomex one is in the laundry Very Happy



^Don't criticize me too much for my hippie hair lol.
I'm going to be picking up some Krylon tomorrow for the helmet.
Like I said though, the kit is still very WIP, so don't hit me too hard.
So, thoughts?

Oh not really. lol, the FSBE II cover runs for about $165 on eBay. I try to make my kits as realistic as possible, so that would be my only real option. Razz

It should, but I already bought the MARCIRAS for another kit I was doing. So I'm not buying another one.
But the MARCIRAS is used in limited numbers by Force Recon.

I actually like the Block I setup better. If I want to mount a grenade launcher, I can do so without using the dumb looking RAS M203. I'm not a fan of free float rails much either, (if I wanted a freefloating barrel, I wouldn't have sold my LaRue racegun. Razz ). Also this gun is "backwards compatible" with my USMC grunt kit. As well, I prefer LaRue rails to Daniel Defense rails. Very Happy

Yeah. It's mostly personal preference. I just don't want to part with the KAC 7" RAS just yet.
Oh, Nomex flightsuit out of the wash. Very Happy

Basic MICH suspension. I think It's made by Skydex. They're quite common on on eBay. I would like to get an Ops Core one, but at $66, that's a hefty price to pay for just a strap.
