    Hi to All
    Have started this great little figure from Andrea 90mm Retreat from Moscow
    Had a few things knocked around or knocked off when I got him (He has traveled many miles and through a few sets of hands) anyway that helps because I use the distressed and damaged bits to enhance the figure. Also added kindling to the backpack.
    Still need to finish Hat , rifle, hands wash the face ,straps ties and buckles etc (Christ I've gots heaps):ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:
    Anyway hope you all like so far.............
    Cheers
