    Hi all,

    I begin my first WWII US figure. I choose The new Soldiers figure 2nd US RANGERS.

    The first thing I note (like Pete told us) this figure seems to be more big than 54mm (between 54 and 70mm).

    All the figure is well done for me but I will try to improve it making some changes in the pockets.

    For doing that I made some milliput attachments to the original pockets. This is also my first try with milliput for doing that (I'm learning ;-) )

    Ernesto,

    Gracias por tus ánimos. Es mi primer soldado americano de esta época por lo que no estoy seguro de qué colores a usar y otras cosas básicas. Supongo que ésto hará que lo tome con tranquilidad dando pasos bien pensados. Espero estar a la altura.

    Un saludo,

    Rafa

    Are the rank stripes yellow? They were either a light tan or khaki at the time. Also, how did you paint the word "RANGER" inside the diamond? That's what is holding me up on this figure.

    Pete, If it's not possible to paint the letters maybe you could just "suggest" them.~Gary

    Pete, Gary is in the correct way. I only sugest the letters.
    About the rank stripes I will try to make some corrections. Thanks a lot.

    Thanks Pete and Gary for your comments.
