Below, the same figure interpreted by Richard J. Provencher, Jr.:
"I have been a huge fan of these figures since I was a teenager in high school, scanning every page of the old, out-of-publication Military Modeler magazine for Pat Bird's newest release. As I recall, many of the figures were feature articles, some of which I still have to this day.
"This is the first figure I had purchased after many months of coveting this beautifully sculpted figure from Military Modeler advertisements. I believe I had saved up some lawn-mowing money for this figure and had the local hobby shop special-order it for me back in the early '80s.
"To date the 'James D. McGeachy,' A/14 is one of my favorites and is still with me after just over 25 years. Surprisingly I enlisted in the military shortly after completing this figure where I went on to serve 21 years and retire. I am now at home actively seeking out vintage Series 77 Miniatures and improving upon my painting skills once again..."
