    Greetings all,

    I just finished this Alpine Miniatures US Infantry NCO (kit# 16022), using various brand acrylics. This figure is slightly modified as I used the head from kit# 16037, US Armored Infantry, 2AD Normandy. I wanted a more seasoned look to this NCO that would also hopefully depict several weeks on the line. For that reason I selected the other head (thanks Taesung!).

    Hope you like the way he turned out.

    Joe
