    Guys,
    Here is my next project...
    It's a 120mm piece from Verlinden that comes in 15 pieces...needed a break from sabertache's and plumes :lol: , so decided I would go the way of Brother Petey for a lil break.

    Eager to hear your thoughts.

    All the best

    Looks like a pretty cool figure. Is it me or does the helmet look too small?

    Brother Petey,
    I think it's the way I have it sitting on the head...I'll see if I can straighten it out for the next update...

    Hope all is well

    This is a Verlinden kit?? I have never seen this one. The helmet does look small, but if you look at the helmet on the guy in BoB (Moose??), dude's helmet looked like it was gonna pop right off his head.

    Matt,
    Yep, trust me, this is a Verlinden piece...

    I think if we take a step back, not every head fit in every helmet, and who is to say that he didn't lose his supporting an assault, and picked up the next one he saw...I dunno, but really think it's the way I have it sitting on his head...

    Patrick,

    I didn't doubt you that it wasa Verlinden kit, I just have never seen that one. As far as the helmet, I completely agree.

    Verlinden is notorious for recycling pieces for their "new" kits. This helmet appears to be the very same steel pot they've used for years, which has always been on the small side - more fitting for a 110mm figure instead of a 120mm figure.

    What Verlinden kit # is that one? I also have never seen it. It must be an old kit long OOP.
