    Always a fan of Wings figures. Top notch paintjob for a top notch figure.

    Excellent painting. The figure has a bit of a sci-fi look about him.

    Hi Steve,

    Thanks for posting.
    Yep & know what you mean "Sci-Fi" thought he looked like something out of Robocop :)
    This was armour which increased likelihood of survival by ~40% so not only looked out there but was also effective.

    Stay safe

    Thank you to both of you Mr Ralph & Zeno.
    An enjoyable project that offered chance to do some research into interesting period.
    Recommend checking out latest Spielberg mini series on these guys


    Gives a real feel for why the armour was necessary, plus a parachute!

    Stay safe,
    Mike

    Hi "Pilgrim" (feel like Clint ;-)

    Thanks for comments.
    Ref "cloud effect" just tried to capture a grey day reflection in the lens.
    Not sure it came off, maybe more luck next time.

    Stay safe
