    Hello Guys,Phil Walden has asked me if I would post some of his work in progress pictures, of his sculpt of a Native figure: N.C.O Pupua New Guinea 1940-45. Pacific threatre .The figure will be available through.Ozmods Scale Models,as a 120mm resin Kit. This little guy has loads of character and will go well with the rest of the Pacific range that Phil has sculpted for Ozmods.

    Excellent WIP pics Phil.

    For those who missed it, the sergeant stripes are stitched on the rear end so the person walking behind knows who he is. Since most trails in Papua could only be traversed in single file, this makes a lot of sense.

    A wonderful addition to the Oz Mods range of figures. Thanks for posting these pics John.

    John thanks for posting and great sculpting from Phil, a subject not widely covered and should be popular.

    Cheers Ken
