    The figure and the outdoor location are so good, you can barely tell the difference between the real guys and him. Good work!

    Great bash. if the poses were more dynamic I'd have to look hard to be able to tell him apart from the real guys.

    Love to see some more of him, reposed. Maybe even with a mate!

    They are real, a couple of guys modeling for Airsoft magazine. This image was part of an article demonstrating what SF guys in A-stan wore.

    Amazing where one can find the motivation to bash. Nicely done and nice pics.
