    Am I seeing that you drilled through the tire to push the wire through? I have a bicycle that I might use sometime and was curious.

    Marijn, Fantastic. It's a single figure like this that stands head and shoulders above the rest. I can't wait to see paint on him.~Gary

    There are so many really fine figures sculpted and painted and on display on this forum. So many interesting and well-crafted and even some thoughtful, original approaches. And then there appears to be you, Marijn. With the two Africans on recon totem pole work and now the African on a failed recon bicycle patrol - you've combined all those qualities and upped the ante - - TWICE IN A ROW!

    All the best,
    Dan

    Hi Marijn,

    Brilliant, as always! :)

    The Aber PE set really adds something special to those Tamiya bicycles... I have the Tamiya bikes as well and was contemptating the Aber set...

    Still on the topic of the bicycle... how extensively did bicycles change between WW1 and WW2? I'm planning a 1920's dio and was thinking of putting a cyclist in it... I was just wondering if the Tamiya WW2 German bikes would be historically correct...

    Marijn, Simply a wonderful piece. You are able, with one or two figures, to convey superbly executed scenes and 'moments in time'.
