Alpine Miniatures US BAR gunner figure conversion

I just got back from Dublin, Ireland where I had the pleasure to run two figure sculpting seminars at the IMSS annual show. I will post a short report about the show later on. Now I focused on a quick figure conversion, a new Alpine release - US BAR gunner. The conversion is about changing the gun into a M1919A6 on bipod (late war variant of the famous .30 cal). I will work more on the ammo pouches since the figure has the ones that were designed for BAR gunners and I need to rework them for the ones that were issued to M1 Carbine armed troops. Moreover I decided to rework the trousers sleeves and make gaiters instead. I will hopefully post a sbs about this little conversion project. I'm hoping to be ready with this in the next couple of days. Stay tuned for more.
