    Nice off beat subject, not that female military are unusual just don't see them as modelling subjects very often. I'll be watching with interest.

    Not many medals to paint on this one, just a single ribbon (probably just for turning up! ouch)
    Look forward to see how this progresses.
    Have you done a Royal Marine yet?

    Nice triptych of female warriors there, would be good to go as a set but you'll need the Navy to complete the set.

    Oh yeah, how did I miss that! It makes sense though the Air Force will be all bashered up in a 5 star hotel somewhere really roughing it!

    Looking good Nap. She can't be too young if that's a GCM (15 years undetected crime, I believe, unless it differs for the US)
    I do like the blue you use.

    STOP PRESS on GCM ( USMC )

    Did a google ...wiki says ...

    Prior to 10 December 1945, four years of honorable creditable enlisted service was required in the Marine Corps for award of the Marine Corps Good Conduct Medal. After 10 December 1945, the required period of service was reduced to three years.Since that latter date, members of the Marine Corps must have three consecutive years of honorable and faithful service in order to be eligible for the medal.

    She can stay blonde .....lol
