If you are not familiar with these items a quick search on the internet will bring you up to speed. Live Resin is making these figures and accessories with a 3-D printer and they are outstanding. They are also modular so you can mix and match the figures body parts and all of their equipment. What is really nice is they give you all the pieces separate so you can tailor make your figures. They also make a bunch of after-market weapons and accessories. The uniforms and equipment are spot on accurate.
Live Resin has made a great looking US Army modern Special Warfare Operator. The weapons, uniforms and equipment are covered in numerous books, so information on these should not be too hard to find. Overall this should build into an outstanding replica and is highly recommended for anyone who enjoys figures. I won this in a raffle at a recent model contest. Some of the pieces were knocked off the sprue and or broken, but that is not a problem.
