    Mike,

    When I first looked at this figure I'd have sworn it was at least 90mm - your painting is unbelievable. I really brings out the best in this excellent Benoit Cauchies sculpt.

    Great companion figure to the nurse and mighty fine painting as well

    An impressive painting of this figure. Really like these new offerings from Tommy's War. Can't make up my mind which one(s) to purchase so I may have to get them all.

    A very well done presentation. And another reminder for
    those of us who believe "to understand the present,
    investigate the past". Yes, indeed, it was not only our
    best gentlemen who faced the dangers of combat, but
    our best women as well. . . . Jayhawker

    That is just beautiful work, Mike! What a unique figure, too. It is nice to see companies produce kits outside of the normal combat troops.

    Absolute stunner!
    For a 1/32 figure, the detail you've incorporated is fantastic.
    Very, very well done.

    Hi Karl & Nap, she is tiny, however beautifully sculpted detail by Benoit made painting her so much better.
    Thanks for comments.
    Edward, Alan, Marc, Adrian - neat to read each of your comments guys Tx! :)
    That's a nice thing to say Bob :)
    And Andy pleased to hear you like this too mate.
    You won't be disappointed with any of these Tommy's Ometz, thank you.
    You are so on to it Jayhawker & agree our foremothers deserves acknowledgement for their service also. Thank you.
    Hi OldTrous, Andrew, Peter, Sarge & Pascal.
    She was a special little figure I wanted to make most of a simple uniform with some touches of detail.
    Glad you each think this was achieved.
    Stay safe,
    Mike
