    Enrico enjoy each of your new projects and this is no exception.
    Your creative story telling with a figure or two really gives us an insight into a variety of US WW2 subjects. Saw photos of your collection in recent Show report & admired each one of them in consistency of quality, as we as presentation. A benchmark for us all. Composition & design remind me of Calvin Tan’s work.

    Thanks for sharing with us.

    thank you Mike, your words make me really happy because they encourage me to continue on this path trying to improve the quality and presentation of the figures every time.
    Calvin Tan is undoubtedly a Master, my Master, and his style and way of concentrating a setting in a small space has always fascinated me and still manages to amaze me every time.
    I try, in my small way, to be able to tell a story with a single figure, putting all the necessary elements, without weighing down the scene with non-essential elements.
    I will continue to show these works of mine in the future, in the hope that they can be an inspiration for someone and that they can definitely do even better than me.

    Enrico,
    Incredibly well done! Father -in-law was a SeaBee. Plied his trade on Okinawa. He would have appreciated this project.

    Classic, unique work, perfection! Great work, Enrico.
  7. BULL A Fixture

    I am very happy that this work is attracting this enthusiasm from you.
    It's a military figure, but it doesn't really have the classic military look of a soldier, but I also liked to highlight little-known but essential units.

    Doug, I'm also very excited to hear that this job would please your father-in-law. I like to think that it could be my tribute to him and to all those men, of any side and front who fought for the ideals they believed in.

    Great idea and brilliantly done, top marks for originality, after I had finished admiring the excellent work I asked myself - what ball did he use for that, glad you answered it in the thread.

    Initially I thought of starting from the resin lead made by Royal Model, but once I received it and compared it with the photo and the figure, I realized it would be too small and not fit for purpose.
    So after some checks and measurements I realized that the ping pong ball was perfect.

    So I decided to keep only small details of the resin kit and rebuild all the rest with various evergreen rods and metal parts.

    Thanks again; what I really liked about this project is that it allowed me to do various searches in a context that I didn't know very much and to discover different peculiarities, such as in the case of tattoos.
    It's not a random detail with a "trivial" or themed design, but I discovered that there was a precise coding and meaning of each tattoo and their position.
