    here is a piece by Mitches Military Models sculpted by Maurice Corry. This is the second time around for me with this figure. The original was 82nd airborne. My client wanted this dude to be 101st but he wanted it to be more d-day appropriate hence the jute cloth on the helmet along with the camo net and med pack. Of course after I added the med pack a friend of mine told me only the 82nd wore the med packs on the helmet on d-day but I have seen pics of the med pack worn by the 101st in pics that claimed to be d-day but could be research gone wrong so I really dont know. The figure as always is painted in vallejo acrylics and the fence was made from icicle pop sticks and an old Verlinden 1/16 scale sign set to give it some setting ID.

    (y) I like it. I'm also painting a US para at the moment, a 90mm Soldiers figure.
    May I ask you what colours you used for the knee patches and cargo pocket reinforcements?
    Any hint would be very much appreciated.

    You have a smooth, recognizable style Dan, and this trooper is another example(y)! This collector ought to be tickled pink to own this! As for the helmet mounted first aid kit, its common to Operation Market Garden, but not Overlord.

    Unbelievably good work and distinctive. I can always recognize your figures on the various websites without having to click on the link(s).

    Dan, you have a unique and unmistakable style - almost "graphic novel" but I mean that in a complementary way because it is so effective and your work is always a joy to behold every time you post something up. I agree with ometz, your work is instantly recognizable anywhere and once again you've played a blinder with this great figure. Fantastic stuff!
