    Your work is always amazing. Do you custom make your helmets? They have a very unique shape. Your paintwork is phenomenal.

    Just outstanding...beautiful. One thing I noticed that would be a nice little tweak is that Miller's knife scabbard is actually tucked into the back flap of his holster in the film (it's not attached to his belt). This can only be seen in one or two frames in the scene where he approaches the tank just before he meets Ryan. It is a little bit difficult to do with a plastic holster (requires two horizontal cuts) but it tucks right into the back flap of a Battle Gear Toys leather holster. Not to nitpick, but when a figure is this perfect, I can't help but mention it. Just awesome.



    Also, two deep horizontal red gashes on the right side of the neck below the ear would really set off that incredible sculpt.



    Lastly he wears a watch on his left wrist with the watch face on the underside of his wrist. It has either an olive green or brown band, silver casing, and black face (probably an Elgin). It can be seen as he looks through the binoculars just before Irwin Wade's death. BBI Paddy Ryan has the perfect watch once you replace the black band with an olive drab or brown strap.

    This link should be the right watch, but I would ask if it has a black face if you do go for it as I don't know if all three of the figures listed really do have the same correct black faced watch.

    I hope you don't think that I'm trying to critisize this figure. It is by far the best that I have ever seen (and I'm obsessed with Miller customs). I would not mention such ridiculously small details as they relate to a lesser figure, but this thing is just brilliant.
