6mm Argentine Infantry

As far as I am aware, no one makes a 6mm Argentine infantry figure, so I was always destined to be substituting and converting figures for these.
I figure that at this scale, the most important thing was to get the head gear about right, which meant figures with the US M1 helmet.
To kick things off, I picked up a pack of USR1 - WW2 US Infantry, as pictured below.

There are five of these strips per code.
To be honest, I'm a little disappointed with these figures, as they lack the animation of the modern UK figures I showed a couple of days ago.
I think I'm going to have to insert some M1 - Modern US Infantry figures that I have from my Vietnam project, to get some battlefield variety.
The only issue here is the packs.  Based on my reading to date, only Argentine special forces had packs, the regular infantry regiments were mainly using kit bags for transport of equipment.
We'll see how it goes.....
