    Wow! That is a very under documented bunch of kit you have there. Then again, that's pretty normal for you Wink

    Thanks for including the details of the items in text form. That's a lot of specialized information.

    Thanks!
    And yes, just how I like it, some weird kits take a long time to even get good kitlists for,
    but when they're finally finished the satisfaction is even greater for it!
    There's still a few things in the lists which I'm not sure about the model number for though.

    It look absolutely superb!

    I like that you have used (intentionally or unintentionally) different shades of webbing for the late 1980- early 1990s load-out.

    Very nice attention to detail  Very Happy

    Thanks! I didn't do that 100% on purpose for the colors, but since I had several different correct options I just randomly combined, just like how someone would get issued stuff Smile
