    Anybody remember Combat?

    David Harper, who passed away back in 2010, gave me this. No idea where he got it, I've never seen it anywhere other than this one, but, it's a great likeness of Vic Morrow, Sgt. Saunders from the 1960s TV series, "Combat". I would guess it to be about 1/4th scale. It's about 10 inches tall...
