    Wow cannot wait ! great choice. ; )

    My Tasca Beemer like many out there sits half finished waiting for figures and figure related gear for the bike.

    AC and Mike Good to the rescue ! : )

    Maybe an accessory set will follow ? !! ; )

    Hello Andy, Very nice progress on the motorcycle duo. The Officer figure is outstanding! Will the driver also wear a camo smock? Any plans for perhaps a third rider? I don't recall ever seeing Waffen SS Motorcycle riders in this scale, or larger before. It definitely fills a void. Look forward to seeing more of your excellent sculpting. Regards, SG:)(y)

    Thanks for the comments guys.The pair are intended as Wehrmacht that being the tarnjacke would be apinted in splinter form.But the modeller is most welcome to remodel the insignia if they wish.

    Hi Andy,

    Your riders look great.
    Since you asked... yes, you did miss something. Mike sculpted a set for me (Model Cellar) that we released in November right after the kit came out. They were actually sculpted BEFORE the kit came out - hence the standing position since we did not have the kit in hand. He is also working on a seated pair for me which we will release in the future.

    Keep up the great work. I Love your WWI stuff, and your Civil War busts are really cool too!
    regards,
    Paul

    Hello Andy, Great looking rider! I like the way the goggles look on his forehead, without any headgear. Will there be any additional equipment, or gear, to mount/stow on the Motorcycle? I look forward to seeing more of this excellent set you have created. Regards, SG(y)
