Helicopter gunners are crewmen tasked with firing and maintaining manually directed armament aboard a helicopter. A so called "door gunner" position isn't a very popular one, due to the exposed position of manning a machine gun in the open door of a helicopter. Downfire is an exception among the men who volunteer to do that job. Originally he's a mechanic, but he always finds a reason to seat himself behind the machine gun. Lift ticket had to admit, Downfire is the best door gunner he had in his Tomahawk. Therefore other members from the Joe team see him as a gunner at first. Having the skills of a mechanic as well is just a fortuitous coincidence.


As soon as I came up with the subject for this GP, a gunner for the Tomahawk was the first idea came to my mind. That awesome helicopter always screamed for a small crew to me, or at least one more figure.

First, I wanted fill the gun position. Searching for a head with at least a helmet and a mic, the regular ARAH heads didn't satisfy me. I checked my box of Corps stuff and found my favorite Lanard figure: Justin Case. The torso had to have some kind of vest. BH's torso was one of the first I found and it looked pretty good in the WIP combination. The rest were just "generic" looking arms, legs and a waist.
