    Beautiful sniper! I wish we had more to choose from in regards to the Korean War. I'd love to do a representation of the Chosin few!

    Ah, sigh. Such exquisite work, Mats
    I am especially fond of the squinting head, the fine parka so fine, and the sniper rifle with the cool mods & flash muzzle.

    And thanks for choosing one of my favorite 1/6th genres.

    Cheers!

    Re: korean war/US Sniper

    It's my prejudice showing, but I think this is your best figure yet. As said by the others, the parka is amazing, and that is a terrific sculpt.

    The prone position, the way he's holding the Garand, I'm guessing the forestock would be resting on something. It's a fine job of posing, but the rifle would buck like a mule.

    Re: korean war/US Sniper

    Firstly, let me agree with everyone here, that this is an AMAZING figure. That parka, the HS, the rifle, the concealed belt kit peaking out from under the parka, just exquisite. I would seriously consider commissioning a parka like that, it is just beautiful. You will have a KOTM from this month, for sure buddy.

    Secondly, the "White Feather" sniper was a USMC sniper in Vietnam, and placed 3rd in over-all total kills. A Vietnam Army Infantry man is first, all the rest being USMC in Vietnam.
