    I'd say this is my best figure work to date so fire away with any useful criticism/comments cheers...

    The whole scene I like, maybe a little dirt on the posters would give more realism.

    I think it's very good. I do second adding some dirt to the sign. Perhaps some thing muddy flicked off of a toothbrush to simulate road spray?
    The camo is well done.

    The only thing I see that detracts from your efforts, are the mold seams on the left hand and on the warhead of the panzerfaust. Make it a habit of focusing on basic modeling before you even start with painting. Clean up mold seams/lines, filling, sanding, general assembly, etc.. Periodically inspect your work. After a while it will be second nature. Other than that, you've done a really good job, especially on the cammo pattern and the use of appropriate colors.

    Overall, you've got a pretty cool looking scene (y)!

    Thanks for the feedback guys. I do try take a lot of time tidying up and cleaning seam lines before painting but I always manage to miss some. Only started the hobby last July so I'm sure with more time and practice I can master that area. Hands seem to be the hardest to tidy up I've snapped a few of my figures fingers while trying to remove Seam lines in the past. Cheers again for the comments

    Just this passed July?!

    No doubt about it, you're doing pretty good. If you don't already have them, get yourself a set of fine needle files and that will do the trick. You are working on a pretty small scale and sometimes those defects are hard to see. Your pictures above are really enlarged and thus merciless :eek:!
