These are quite under rated figures, probably becuase they have been copied so many times. They paint up well and look the part in my opinion. Certainly a clasic Airfix set.

Nice work on those, Dave! Might I ask what paint guide you used, they look very "Guadalcanal" to me...

Very nice result. I agree they are good figures, although I always thought it a bit of a shame that there are two distinct types in the set - the 7 figures that were cast in the 1/32 scale set and the rest of the set. Personally I prefer the rest as the 7 seem out of scale compared to other Airfix figures. There is a similar issue with the German infantry set. That said Dave you have done a great job on all of them. I hope you paint some other sets in the range.

Great job  :thumb: Must agree with Paul, you seem to have captured the green of the uniform perfectly.

Cheers
