I was thinking of some more uses for the truck cover piece and I wanted to use my new army men so this it what I came up with. I think it's a decent parachute but it could be bigger.

I agree it could be bigger, but it definetaly looks good the way it is.  I love those new green parts.

Great job!

Nice use of the parts, Tom Bricks! I have been toying with the idea of a paratrooper or simply a sport-para for some time now, too.
Maybe you could try with some sails from the Pirate ships, for a bigger parachute (although the fabric is not equilateral in that case)...

Nice - the floor looks well "arty" ...lol

I like the idea a lot....you could do one of these where he got stuck in a tree therefor giving the parachute somewhere to hang off..

I love lego - Glad I found this epic forum!!! - it all started for me when I inadvertantly inherited loads - since then sites like toyBrickShop have had me hooked - till I found this awesome place, now I just spend hours looking at lego MOC's in absolute wonder!

That's a very original use of two cloth truck covers! :classic: I also like that you used all three available shades of green for the ground. :classic:

Great use of the canopy, and the yellow also seemed to work very well. :thumbup:
