    This is not my latest project, I finished the figures and Chevy truck almost a year ago, but I haven't finished the groundwork for a long time, so I decided to finish up this vignette, I'm working on this these days.

    This might look like a AFV dio, but for me this is "Figure Vignette" (main theme is LRDG crew figures) so I think it's OK to post on planetFigure, not planetArmor. (Is it OK, gordy? :))

    Greetings Kazufumi . . .

    Hello Kazufumi:

    I am so glad you posted this well designed Figure vignette here on Planet
    Figure. I wouldn't want to have missed it. You are one fine artist. There is
    so much to like about this well composed, well thought out little vignette.

    Strong composition, a terrain fabrication that is uneven, (meaning more
    difficult to do than a flat terrain) and very eye catching and interesting to
    look at, a super example of the principle of colour harmony; and so much
    more.

    Lovely execution of the figures, the vehicle, every aspect of this
    presentation has been completed to the same high standard.

    Congratulations to you. Wowzer! (y)(y)(y)

    That is a nice piece of work ,the AFV looks a beast of a machine and
    the weathering is tops, nice vignette.

    My goodness Kazufumi, what a beautiful piece of work. The rig blends in with the base so well and the figure's actions really flow very well, not to mention the painting. Just incredible!! Can't say enough, love it!!


    Cheers, Ski.

    Steven, John, Carl, David, Meizi, ALEXANDROS, Dan, and Gordy, Thanks a million for your compliments my friends!

    Wow, what a wonderful comments I've got! Thank you steve! Total combination of figures, truck, and groundwork is the most important thing to me on building this project so I'm really glad to hear such a comment.

    Wow wow thanks Alex my friend! :) I read the novel "KILLING ROMMEL", and was very much inspired by that. I got a vision from that novel and that's one of two strong reasons I decided to buid this. One is the novel, and the other is the New world miniaturs figures.

    I really glad to get a comment who did the boxart of this amazing figures!!! Wow! You made me do this! :)

    I was really amazed waching your work and NWM sculpting work, and to tell the truth, shocked. That's the perfect image of LRDG in my head. I admire your painting work (I also am a BIG fan of your bust work such as MG gunner and 1/16 tank dio, too!) so I refered to the boxart very much. Thank a LOT for your comment!
