    Ray,
    you're off to a fantastic start! The flesh tones on the face are spot-on! Keep us posted on this one. This is the "Painters" figure for this years HMSNEO Tulsa show and he is on my bench as we speak. I have him primered and ready to start! I reallly want to see how yours comes along as I work on mine! I have done a VERY slight conversion on mine though. Thanks for posting,

    Ray speaking of this figure, I have a question for you. The gun that mounts to his back on the right side. Does it have to mount muzzle down? I know the box art shows it mounted facing down, but the way mine lines up, it would look much better with the butt-end towards the bottom. Could you show some close ups of how you got it to fit on the figure properly? Thanks in advance for any help here!!!!

    Jay, I took no chances and followed the box art........moreover being no expert on the question asked, when holding a rifle or as in this case a carbine from where it's hooked on the shoulder strap, it sure leans forward as the muzzle is heavier then the butt :( that is the attachment point is far away from centre of balance, so it will lean forward........

    All pics I've seen with this sort of "equipment" show the carbine leaning forward :eek:

    I stand for correction by all means, from any "authority" on this matter.......

    I will take some pics of the "new" attachment point and the slight "upgrade" I did for your benefit........

    Hi Jay......

    Here's some shots of the carbine's attachment and the "false" pin i made also of copper wire, 1stly so I can hold it while painting and 2ndly so I'll get a secure and snug fit :lol:

    The hole where the pin would go in, can be seen on the first pics even though my monitor is showing a BLACK instead of that dark Blue you can enjoy, so I can't see that same hole :angry:

    I'm also adding 2 pics showing the scabbard which is also pinned.........

    Hope this helps and if you know anyone from your club or group who's painting this dude for the Tulsa show pls pass the info on, maybe it would help as the fit per se is a bit tricky as the resin rods even though finely cast can look a bit bulky at least on my version they were :(

    Take Care,

    Ray.
