    A very special project representing our history.
    Lots of painting options for the blanket skirt too.

    Perhaps the first & only time in this scale, though Master Modeller John Belcher has scratch some little beauties.
    Got a few ideas on how to personalise this myself.
    In a couple of weeks our local town hosts a number of reactors who don this uniform as part of Armistice commemoration.

    So will be rich source of research for me & others.
    Who else is interested in this little fellow?

    Great to see a subject not sculpted previously, and one from New Zealand.

    Great subject , lovely sculpting and an often overlooked period of history .

    A great book I managed at last to get is by Tim Ryan and Bill Parham ..great read with colour plates and acked full of details

    Also noticed that in this months Mil Mod there is an excellent article and figure conversions of this period .

    Thanks for sharing
