    Thank you Francisco - on checking some of the details in the Osprey Special Naval Landing Force book, there are a couple of anomalies on the illustration, so I have taken details from that book, being specific to the SNLF... (y)

    That's a cracker, Steve - reminds me of the old Almark 1/32 Japanese Infantry figure sets from the 1970s, but with MUCH more detail!
    Seriously though, great figure & very commercial because there aren't that many WW2 Japanese figures around - ever thought of doing a Japanese para?

    It's interesting that WW2 Japanese are rarely modelled, possibly due to their reputation for barbarity, but no such constraints apply to modelling the SS.

    Ive ordered a figure as well, looking forward to getting it to hand.. An Aussie mate of mine loves Japanese figures and Ive painted up a couple for him, so he will be eager for me to have a go at this one..
