    We Kiwis, John Belcher & I have had the chance to paint up another lovely little figure for David Allen's Wings Cockpit range.

    Our versions are presented below for you to consider:
    - John's in light blue
    - Mine in Guynemer inspired black jacket

    This is 1/32 sculpted by Benoit Cauchies and available from Model Design Construction:

    What do you think?

    Both are tremendous little figures and now, we just need WNW to get their finger out and do some SPAD and Nieuport scouts.

    Mike and John,
    Brilliant, Masterpieces in their own right.

    Have you guys considered contact a museum and do some commissions either for the 100th Anniversary of outbreak of WW1 or Gallipoli?

    Both beautiful figures . Nice to see such different styles with equally good results . Particularly like the effect on the coat of the second guy .

    Mike,
    Great couple of painted figures. You two did a great job and they almost look like two different figures entirely.
    Cheers
