    Thanks for looking.
    This is the first 1/35 figure I bought and after several abortive attempts I've decided to re-visit it.
    An Alpine U.S tank crew, the head is also Alpine with the face drilled out and replaced with a more weary looking Hornet item.
    As always any comments or advice are welcomed.

    Nice job cleaning out the old head :coffee: for the new one, makes the Alpine figure have a very different look

    Spot on - like the weathered look of the clothing & helmet, he looks like he’s been in the line for some time.

    Excellent painting on this one. As I always say, those apparently simple uniforms are often anything but - you're doing a grand job

    Thanks to you all.
    After increasingly dumb, expensive and outlandish ideas for a base I've gone for something safe and traditional.
    Made with plaster, Mig mud, static grass and dried roots. The fence is balsa wood and picture wire.
    Also my first test fit.
