Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

    There was a news item tonight about the launch on VE-Day this year of a range of modern military Action Man dolls (incidentally the item was fronted by a Crab with a day's growth but I suppose that's not un-officer-like in the RAF). There was only a very quick scan of what is intended but all were suitably warry and the set seems to include a Harrier loaded for bear. However (although there has been a sailor Action Man in square rig in the past) the RN seemed to be under-represented.

    So, for this weekend's homework, please propose RN-type dolls for inclusion in the range, for instance a Chief Stoker? Dolls can of cousre be either sex but should include a comprehensive kit list etc.

    btw there was included the usual bleat from some wetnik about not giving children ideas about war, guns etc. Yuk.
     
  2. I vote for a full life size Naval Nurse doll with "funtional bits"


    Along the lines of these.

  3. A mincing Occifer Steward
    A Wafu in Pyjamas
    A Greenie with pimples and glasses
    A stoker with shovel
    A matelot complete with Dose
     
  4. The Faye Tunny Coxswain doll, upon carrying out feasibility studies however it was found that the amount of plastic required to make a scale reproduction of her harris made this doll economically unviable.

    The Daywear/ Nightwear Bootie this set includes a muscle bosun doll, a full set of CS95 (With all the bells and whistles), scale Green Lid made of a blob of plastic (As per original Action Man Commando doll) 2x scale roll mats for pre run ashore fun and games and for the evening wear a selection of Barbies finest couture.

    And our special for Norman of Kiddiminster, the Lieutenant Commander fully kitted out with desk and mountain of paperwork and neg sea legs.

  5. Classic :wav:
     
  6. I got the QARNNS (nurse) I married one, but if its reality, how about a Jack doll.
    Uniform in ribbons two days growth and smelling of spew and lager.
    Could even have an egg banjo in one hand and a bottle in the other.
     
  7. I'd like a full size fully functional Commander James Bond (RNVR) doll - from the Pierce Brosnan mould. Removable uniform essential. Kit List: Toothbrush & Comb.

    SP. (Swooning at the thought). :D
     
  8. I`ll have you know I resembled that remark :)

    Does it come complete with golden blanket or is this an add-on item?

    For the comms department of old, the bunting-tosser should, of course, be a sun-bronzed Adonis character while the sparker should be pale, wearing slippers, and carrying a pipe.
