    I am looking forward to the new venue in Atlanta.

    Here is a Micheal Roberts 120mm US Marine Sniper I am working on for The Atlanta Show next month. The Springfield rifel is from another source that is OOP. The manufacture has slipped my mind. Painted with Vallejo and Andrea for skin tones. There is room for some final fine-tuning and improvements.

    Looks good! WHat colors did you use for the uniform? I am trying to paint a WWII marine and am struggling to find appropriate colors.

    Brent -
    Looks great, but I would try getting the USMC/Marine emblem stencil on the left breast pocket, and the emblem on the front of the camo cover of the helmet. Some times the last name of the Marine was stenciled in caps across the back between the shoulder blades in black. Are these items show stoppers? No, but it oft times is the little things that determine 1st place from the rest. You definately need the pocket stencil plus the U.S. on the canteen covers. Also, loose the front sight on the barrel-not found on the 1903-A4.

    Nice figure, thank you for posting. I believe the rifle depicted is a 1903-A1 and the front sight blade would be correct.

    Nice work Brent, good luck in Atlanta.

    I'd like to see the USMC emblem on the pocket flap too.

    Wow! Very cool.
    I like the color of the uniform very much.
    I was a fan of this figure, too.
    I congratulate completion.

    Very nice, agree about the emblem. BTW, is this really 120mm? I thought about buying this one a number of times but decided not to because I thought it was listed as 100mm, which wouldn't go with any of my other USMC figs. Nice work

    Good effort here and yes there needs to be a few USMC emblems added. Good luck in Atlanta - just enjoy the show.
