Love this pic. Great work. It reminds me of a younger me when I was in 2/4 RAR in the mid 80's. Do you mind if I modify it a little and use it?

Very cool, great work! - Keep it up!

Also, If you could do a modern ISAF Special Forces soldier with a beard that would be awesome!

big time - and not just proud also angry when i think of how he was treated after he came home.
the whole 'agent orange' thing also gets me a bit peeved as cancer is what killed him and in our family so far i have had 2 ops for it,one of my sisters lost her kid to it and another brother is also just recovering from an op related to cancer as well.

as a Vietnam vet said only yesterday to me we keep dying and the shooting stopped years ago..

But the Australian SLR was British-made, hence taking thier names for it: L1A1 and L2A2.
