This is my WWII British Sniper as he would be seen in the deserts of North Africa in WWII. His sleeves are up to ward off the heat, and he carries a scoped Lee-Enfield as a weapon. This is also my sort of "sig-fig". It's hard to see, but the scope on the SMLE is actually off to the side a bit. I did this on purpose. Many Lee-Enfield rifles had the scope mounted to the side like this so that the scope was not blocking the ejection port, providing better ejection of shells, as well as allowing the shooter to still load the gun via 5 round stripper clips rather than the slow and tedious job of one bullet at a time.

nice helmet, where does one get it?
As I have said before, it is a Brickarms prototype Brodie helmet. I got it as a gift from the man who makes and sells them. It is not yet released as a production item, but if all goes to plan, it will... at some point. In the meantime, check out the other cool weapons and accesories this guy sells at www.brickarms.com.
If you buy from there, be sure to tell him JHank (from thier forums) sent you!

THIS IS AWESOME! I want you to join my group WWII Pacific Theater and put this in even though its not in the pacific and maybe you could give him an M1 pot helmet instead.
I would love to join your group... unfortunately, I do not have any M1 pot helmets. I desperately want one/some though! If you could point me in a direcion where I could find/buy/trade for some, that would be greatly appreciated!!
