    Dear All Please Ignore the postage stamp Photos larger ones canbe found later in the thread cheeers - Chris This great figure is nearly finished,

    And I think I am the first to post a version of him!!! so I hope I have done him justice ! , he was a beast to carry back from russia after my last mission !! stone on groundwork is real granite !!

    It was a great sculpt , easy to assemble and I painted him to represent a young member of 3 para the morning after the battle to Take Mount Longdon - I agonised about the camo cream on his face but speaking from experience no Infantryman would go into a night assault without it - and from Jimmys photos (thanks Jimmy) it appeared that all of the lads from 3 para took thier battle prep very seriously - This in my way is a tribute to the men of 3 para who took that mountain, and to those that never came home - It is also a tribute to all past and serving Brit soldiers.

    Thank you Moz for releasing such a great figure , and sincere thanks to Jimmy for his personal photos and advice, I made some minor conversions eg whopping base representing the conditions in the falklands , a first feild dressing on his left hand webbing yoke strap and the scarf , as well as scrub on his helmet netting - I hope I captured the look and the spirit of a young para after this hard fought battle

    My Pics arent the best but I hope you get the idea(y) Dear Moz i Dont know if you will see this thread or not but I have sent you a PM re making an order from you, could you please give it some thought and get back to me - Thanks

    Best RGDS to all

    Excellent, I fell for your first trap Chris, I was clicking furiously on the first pictures and wondering why they never got any bigger :confused:

    Love the way it has come out and the old field dressing was pretty standard taped to the webbing too........... nice one :)
