1/6th U.S.A.F. PARARESCUE JUMPER by VERY HOT

One of my latest addition to my 1/6th collection is the U.S.A.F. Pararescue Jumper by Very Hot. I decided to decided to dress up TRUE-TYPE: Bronze by Hot Toys, for this outfit, reason being that I do not wish to hide his celebrity face behind a balaclava. This U.S.A.F. Pararescue Jumper is my second Very Hot outfit set, first being NAVY SEAL CQB and latest being S.W.A.T. The U.S.A.F. Pararescue Jumper has got a simpler outfit.



Pararescuemen (AFSC 1T2X1), also called 'PJs' (refers to the title 'para jumpers'), are United States Air Force Special Operations Command (AFSOC) and Air Combat Command (ACC) operatives tasked with recovery and medical treatment of personnel in humanitarian and combat environments. They are the only members of the DoD specifically organized, trained and equipped to conduct personnel recovery operations in hostile or denied areas as a primary mission. They wear the maroon beret, as a symbol of their elite status.

The boots has got an OAKLEY logo on it! Weird! This time the pistol comes fitted in the holster. The Very Hot CQB holster was too tight for its pistol.

I have wrongly dressed up his rappelling harness (as shown above), which would ride up his crack if dressed this way! I was only enlightened by the good fellow at PlayPenz. The right way is shown in the Poses gallery, where the butt cheeks should seat on the two vertical straps. Don't laugh, 'cos I'm not rock climber!



David sure sucks with the helmet and goggles, partly because of Beck's unique hairdo restricts the helmet from sitting in properly, even without the black rubber fitting (as shown above). Nevertheless, PlayPenz has shown that the helmet fits TRUE-TYPE: Black very well!

A simple range of accessories. A missing green cyalume stick was found missing but was replaced by the kind people at PlayPenz. I have not put on the gloves as I dislike fitting the gloves onto the fingers and have to struggle with holding of weapons with gloves on.

great pix pro bro, really a waste that he can't be fitted with the helmet. It was really nice of the guys at playpen to replace the missing cylume stick for you. Glad to see you more immersed in the hobby and looking forward to your swat photos.
