This kitbash attempts to closely resemble (with creative liberty) the ‘Urban Medium’ gear/protection level as seen in Rainbow Six 3: Raven Shield.
Admittedly, it’s much closer to the ‘Urban Heavy’ due to the use of a SWAT tactical vest with shoulder armor. I have a kevlar helmet with visor, but no shinpads to complete the heavy looks. This made me abandon the kitbash for quite some time, hoping a manufacturer would come up with shinpads.
Eventually, I picked up where I left and after a bit of brainstorming and tinkering, I ended up crossing the features of ‘Urban Medium’ and ‘Urban Heavy’. Nonetheless, it still has that intended R6 feel to it.
The H&K G36 is one of my favourite assault rifles in Raven Shield next to the AUG. The one used in the PC version of Raven Shield is the ‘Kurz’ (Short) version while the inferior console version uses the ‘C’ (Compact) version. I’m assuming there is no such thing as a console port and that the PC version has the G36C all the time. *whistles ignorantly*
Originally, this figure was armed with an Intoys MP5A4 with a Dragon Models Aimpoint glued to it. When TTL released their G36C/MP7 weapon set, I figured I should change the weapon for a slightly less generic look (MP5s and M4s are too widely available in 1/6).
