    ^That sounds great--how are you doing the torch? There is an Action Man toolbox with tools that might also work for you.

    I did a similar bash for my SeaBee: dungarees, t-shirt, construction helmet and gloves, crash-crew toolbelt with AM tools, pick-ax and diver's sledge hammer.

    I'm debating getting a bag sealer and trying to use it to shorten the toolbelt so it fits better.

    the torch will use the orange air tanks from the sea sled diver for sure. I need to try to bash something from maybe the flamethrower for the actual torch. Tools are slowly falling into place thanks to my flipping of GI Joe lots on ebay. I get lots of odd bits that are not Joe mixed in. So far just a hammer and a wrench. I need to find a pair of goggles too.

    was looking at that one, simple enough to fit in with the 60s line. I really think Hasbro would have reused its existing tanks some how. I do have a flamethrower lot around, too. cut off one big tank and use the smaller one with it. Another good one would have been a front line reporter set. That would bring the whole Ernie Pyle/GI Joe connection full circle.

    Glad I could add something to the conversation. The little red piece in bottom of package is a stand for the Welding tanks. You get the Crash Crew belt reused, New Tool box, Balpien hammer, gloves, ect. The welding tanks are a reuse of the Scuba tanks. I'm guessing but it looks like the knob from Deep Sea Diver helmet was used on top for valves.
