    Very nice Keith.
    That frock coat must have been a bugger well done.

    Thanks for Looking in Mick.
    That frock, all I can say is not printable here.
    All of the flat detail, tails, sash, arm chevrons etc are all Milliput.
    For the fine lace on cuffs and collar I finally settled on very fine wire.
    Cheers Mate

    Hi Keith,

    Glad to see someone else making good use of the old Airfix figs. These are mine from 40+ years ago... built using kit-bits and plastic wood (no greenstuff in those days). Not up to this site's standards and now long overdue for a repair, clean up and a re-paint :(

    Anyone guess which kit is which? (one is a scratchbuild except for the face and hands)

    Hi Neil
    Welcome back.
    We were all the same 40 years ago Mate.
    The massive changes in all areas make things a lot more possible.
    I would leave your pieces as they are and use them as a reminder where you came from.
    If you think I can help at all drop me a line.
    All the best
    Keith

    Yes, thanks (y)

    The oldest one is the pikeman, probably made c1965 (I'd be 14/15): before then I did a really awful samurai (didn't understand how the armour worked) which I no longer have and a not very good landsnecht (based on Joan of Arc!). The last of the Naps would have been c1969 and included my first scratchbuild.

    I then moved on to my still to be completed mounted samurai (still 1/12th). A 40 yo WiP which I've recently started re-fiddling with :)
