Greetings:

Here's a WWII US Waistgunner I'm currently working on. The headsculpt was done by Erick Sosa and painted by Sebastien Bontemps (Elvis1976). The base decal was done by Corrose. The rest of the gear is from Dragon Models, Hot Toys, BattleGear Toys and Sideshow Collectibles. Along with Corrose I am currently working on the "Memphis Belle" artwork for the back of the jacket. Stay tuned.

Eric

Duuude that looks awesome! I'm usually not really one for Air Force type figures but this guy looks really great. Really nice with the head sculpt, it fits really well.

Hmm. Not sure why you don't see the pics. Everyone else seems to see them. Sorry.

Actually, the jacket and pants are from the DML "Billy Hicks" Waistgunner set.

He looks good. A couple of suggestions:

1. Try putting on a DID B-3 flying leather jacket on him and it will look much better. You can
erase the painted artwork on the back with Acetone solution if you desire.

2. Repaint the A-6 flying boots an appropriate brown color paint to make it more accurate.

Re: WWII US Waistgunner Bruce Willis - W.I.P.

Question. Is the rubber bottom suppose to the brown or black as seen in this pic?

Also, would a member of the Memphis Belle have A-6 boots with or without the straps? I read "Beginning in November 1944, the A-6 was modified with the addition of buckled leather straps to help keep the shoes more secure on the foot. This modification was later declared as the Type A-6A Standard on 7 August 1945."

Thanks.
Eric
