    Hi Ken,
    Thank you for joining in mate, after seeing you tackle Masterbox figures and the results you got I'm definitely in this for the long hall.
    You turn 4 or 5 of these figures around pretty quickly, all you have to do is multiply by 14 or so;).
    cheers
    Richie


    Hi Simon,
    Thank you, yes need a few more I agree.

    Hi Nap,
    This is what I have missed making something unique for me instead of casting all the time.
    I am enjoying this and it is getting my modelling mojo back.

    Cracking figure, the plastic figures are really good for converting and creating unique pieces.

    Hi All,
    Another couple of custom Para's done, a bit of clean up and some equipment to add but more or less done.
    The running Para will be coming out of the doorway to support the front barricade. The kneeling Para
    firing will go in one of the windows.

    I would like to thank Steve Readdie for a heads up on these two books, they are stunning approx. 1500
    pages between the two and absolutely packed with photo's. Well worth the money.

    Thirdly I have decided on a disembarkation project....go big or go home. So I have purchased these
    Para armour kits, also looking at getting a Horsa glider to compliment these.

    You really are going big with that lot mate, some excellent kits there and lots of possibilities especially with the glider.
    Figures are coming along nicely, like the Bren gunner especially.
    Cheers mate

    I think it's safe to say that you are completely bonkers! It's going to be epic but where the hell are you going to keep it? The figures look great, don't forget all the spent brass.
