    Looking forward to seeing your progress Simon.

    I regret not buying more of these S&T figures when they were readily available. I'd like one of these guys myself, but not so badly that I'm prepared to pay the silly money they go for on feeBay these days.

    ... I have that figure (an original casting by S&T) and I'm wondering too ... the helmet here f.e. sure isn't the original one... weird

    right so many questions

    so lest do them in order

    helmet: it is the helmet that came with the kit however i have removed the original detail and added my own netting and retaining strap in order to paint the unit/rank identification marks on the helmet more easier and for them to be seen ie pic [IMG]
    [IMG]

    regards casting it is an original came sealed in the box but maybe its my photos i did remove the pocket on the left shoulder in order to put first sergeant stripes in place and then i also removed the magazine pouch on the entrenching tool as i didn't like its addition.

    in reference to the left soldier, I will be painting this figure as a member of the 502nd Parachute Infantry Regiment 101st Airborne Division. The 502nd took it upon themselves to tie a piece of gauze/bandage to their left shoulders as a form of regimental identification for the jump into Normandy as referenced in the photo. So this is my gauze to be painted

    hope this answers all questions

    cheers simon
