    Yep, it was the couple of Belgians seated in the front row I was hoping you'd spot.
    Shame it's difficult to make out the badges, the chap far left, middle row with the white lanyard is perhaps RA.

    Another very nice trio from the Jimbo/Nap combo.
    Is the nurse a fresh sculpt, or a conversion?
    Looking forward to seeing this lot come to life.

    Cheers,
    Andrew

    Great idea and looking good so far. The nurse really makes the whole thing work.

    I told you having a nurse would make this scene work. I am never going to let you forget that mate.

    Hi Guys

    Couple of updated pics on the first of the 3

    Uniform all done
    Cap done except strap ( Gloucester Regt )

    Going to push the red highs on the tie a bit more

    Eyes ( he will be looking to his right at the nurse ) and fleshwork to be done

    He represents George Saysum from the Glosters who won the Military medal which the ribbon is being worn

    The other soldier will be representing James Collins from the Seaforth's who won both the DCM and the MM with bars for both so stay tuned

    Thanks for looking in

    Wonderful composition, and the look of the pilot on the right (looking at the nurse) is a nice hint at what happened most of the time - the lads looking at those nice, caring , ......nurses.
