    Combloc Inspired LGAM camo pattern

    Back when Combloc did the Cetme L thread the "GAM" reference got drilled into my brain. I remember the toys from my childhood, though I can't remember playing with them. Anyway, I decided to cut some stencils and buy some cheap paint to experiment with.

    Oh yeah, the triangular handguards had cracks and are missing their heat shields, no good parts were defaced in this test.

    That's pretty cool Holes. What did you use to cut out the stencils or did you freehand it? A good portion of my childhood was spent with loads of those guys.

    Cricut Explore Air. I decided to get one after seeing this video a member from the Practicalmachinist gunsmithing forum posted. The acid etching method allows more creativity down the road.

    I shot mine with a BB gun! Made for great targets... especially the metal detector soldier.
    Luv me some cosmoline!

    HAHA!! I LOVE it!!!

    I have many if not all of those guys. All of the black ones and some of the tan and green ones are Tim Mee "Modern" (at the time) soldiers. Also mixed in are some Airfix WWII US Paratroops. The Tim Mee guys were only made in 1/35 scale while the Airfix were made in both 1/35 and 1/76 scale. I think I still have around 19,000 (give or take) army men. They were my favorite toys when I was a kid and I still have most of them. My house was designed with holes cut through the concrete floor to act as built in planters and I have troops and equipment hidden in them amongst the foliage waiting to ambush passers by at any given moment. I'm a nerd.
