    Up to the normal high standard for Youngs, it reminds me of the LRDG bust must be the fag hanging in the mouth, soft cap & pose but I must say I do like it and he looks very well sculpted,not sure about the hand though.
    Cheers

    Seen that face before! I wish he'd stretch himself more on this front as it would make his stuff all the better; he doesn't have to go away from the square-jawed type, which I guess he knows are the best sellers, but too many of his faces come from the same mould (both literally and metaphorically {with the same type of features}).

    Yep I love the squared jaw look, really sets it him off as a para. Hope he sticks with this type of face as it's lot better than the magazine cover type of the German mg42 guy or the brit Porky Para both of which (literally and metaphorically look kak {with different types of features})

    Are you joking?
    These faces are very, very different.
    One is an english man, the other is an american boy.

    Only the cigarette is the same.

    Well the square-jawed paratrooper is just as much of a cliché as the handsome German hero type.

    I don't mind the MG42 guy's face, in isolation; there's a place for that kind of depiction in any range for sure, just as long as it's not overused. I tend to agree on the Para, that ended up looking a bit too much like a caricature.

    Seems just another somewhat generic Young WW2 figure--looks like a pastiche of a couple other earlier releases. This manufacturer can do much better than this offering.

    Lovely piece, great face great attitude and just looks like a hard as nails, kick ass para.

    Why are people so picky and negative to youngs busts,,,, dont get it personally.

    Maybe its because they wish he would do something they liked instead of what he likes doing ????

    I like them all and can appreciate the great talent and craftmanship that goes into these regardless of what they are.

    Don't like it..love it!.
    I don't care much its similarity with the LRDG, since I don't have it in my cabinet...If I had painted 5 or 6 LRDGs already, perhaps I would think in another way.

    I think that the aesthetic problem about the hand can be easily solved by extending the arm down just to the same cutting line as the hand. something like this: x0534xav.jpg
