    Hi Guys ,

    On the bench ...an original sculpt from my long suffering mate Jimbo (using a UP miniatures head) ...only been in the GA for a "few" years !!!!!

    Originally going to be a WRAP Cpl but I have changed the formation sign (well will do !!!) ...she has her jimjams still on after her rude awaking curtesy of a bombing raid running to light up the sky with her search lights .

    Thanks for looking
