    This is now available from Gordon. The original figure with details of rank etc. can be found here: https://www.planetfigure.com/threads/tribute-to-veterans-falklands-war-1982-scale-1-9.257970/

    It is worth noting that Branch Badges are worn on the right arm. A single fouled anchor on the left arm indicates a Leading Hand, and the Good Conduct Badges are the chevrons below, awarded after four, eight (and twelve) years. All badges are now in gold braid.

    I have added a column with a hanging White Ensign and extended the half figure to just below the waist belt. I will add a bayonet in its scabbard if Gordon wants a full figure. There are two small plaques with Falklands 1982 and 1939 - 45 on them to be placed across the lower half of the ensign. The SLR is the early model with wooden stock, hand and foregrips. You could easily use a SMLE if you preferred - 'square rig' has been in use for over a century. If you don't want the base or ensign, you can cut the base off and do your own thing.

    You will see my painted version. I'm sure that Gordon can cut the column off for you. I suggest you p.m. him.

    I have separated the base and half-figure for those who wish to do their own thing . Hopefully it will be available from Gordon shortly.
