    Excellent figure, the uniform hangs really well on him, love the weathering detail on the Thompson especially. The fighting knife looks great too!!

    That's very nice. He's really well put together and looks entirely convincing. Do you intend him for an officer ? I notice the collar and tie.
    If you wanted to raise him to perfection, my only suggestions might be to paint the edges of his insignia, which show rather white : it's a fiddly job, but worth it.
    And the webbing : Most of the manufactured British webbing by DML & BBI is really too pale . Vallejo 914 or 880 are pretty good matches for the real colour.
    And most Bergen rucksacks were a darker olive green shade than shown, by the late war period.
    But that's just me being a pedant !
    Bravo!

    Looks great! The Thompson's the kicker here. Where's that HS from, out of curiosity?

    Stylish and lethal, too. Another fine addition to your long line of great bashes, Cpl Ho!

    Thanks guys!

    Mr Barton, thanks for the feedback! I actually put a scarf around his neck, not a tie and collar... Perfection is what I admire in your work, and something I work towards very gradually in this hobby, so thanks for the tips!

    Some real nice WW2 works for July. Love the figure and the graphics really set it off.
