    Here's my second and latest Flat in a series of regiments and services who served in the Falkland war.
    It's a 120mm Royal navy anti aircraft gunner taken from the picture by the artist K.Lyles.
    Many thanks for looking.
    Cheers Ken

    I've just seen my first flat purchase of 2012. :)
    Good work Ken, I never imagined I would see a 40/60 Bofors loader as a flat :awesome:

    Ken, again great work in folds and creases.
    The ammunition gives the figure a dynamic pose.(y)

    Ken, well done mate another beauty, this is an area/conflict that has not been covered much especially the lads in the RN who gave a lot out there. This lovely figure will be very popular especially for those NMM painters to practice thier black arts on the Bofors rounds. Kevin Lyles is a brilliant illustrator and you have done him justice
    Have a good Christmas see you soon.

    Ken, what struck me is your timing. In 1983 I was an 18 year old RN Gunner spending my first Christmas away from home in the Falkland Islands, I missed the war because my ship was in refit, and here I am spending another Christmas at sea. I'm grateful I've got a job but there must be better ways of earning a living than this. :D

    Ken,
    another brilliant effort - seems like youve got the flats market stitched up!
    as ever, these should do really well for you, if the comments are anything to go by!

    Another cracking bust to add to the range mate, I can see with every one that you do that you are getting better and better with these flats, great job mate, subject matter is a good idea.
