Notes The US Army and Marine Corps were issued fully reversible camo uniforms during the later part of WWII. The two uniforms issued to each were not the same, but I believe the camouflage patterns were. Most of the units that received this pattern served in the Pacific Theater, though there is a story about some Army troops getting shot up by friendly fire in Normandy while wearing the Army version (from a distance they would look like Waffen SS troops).
After the war the pattern was used in Korea but was dropped going into the early 1960s (perhaps late 50s). Not many countries have based their uniforms on this pattern (Australia and Columbia come to mind), but it has been widely adopted as a commercial "duck hunter" camo.
this contains the V models (first person) and the W models (on the ground and in hands)
Hope you enjoy the models!
