    Hi Guys,

    Ive finally got around to finishing the paint on this one, but it still needs the base finishing.

    A conversion from the Tamiya 1/16 Rommel, depicting a Greek cavalry NCO, 1920s. I have omitted the sword which was on my previous posts, as I intend to eventually get round to making his horse, so that will have the sword attached to the horse furniture.

    All painted in acrylics, apologies for the slightly dark cast on the photos, the sun is very bright at the moment!

    Thanks for looking,

    Steve(y)

    Thanks Dekiman - the horse only exists in my imagination, yet, but I think it will be based on either a Dragon or Miniart one when I get round to doing it!(y)

    In another thread with a similar figure in 1/35 (I think it was your figure) I had posted a lot of pics which you might find now in the uniforms section uploaded by Dan Morton...

    Thanks Fokonias - Yes, it was this figure you remember, whist in progress. The uniform details you sent me were fantastic and enabled me to get everything as accurate, as possible.
