British Paras

While I'm working on my tank for the Arnhem Group Build Project I show you some other figures I painted. Nothing special just one radioman from the Airfix set and one is Hong Kong made. The last one is a bit to tease Paul from Plastic Warriors. I've been reading he would like to have this figures! But to be honest Paul, I just have this one and one other left from the battlefields from my sons.
 
Here is the one from Airfix. I painted this one for my montly duels at the Benno's Figure Forum. Yes I was mad enough to do another year of these duels. At the end I had 25 duels on a row (2014 and 2015). More pictures of this duels will follow later on this year. The result of the duel (one of the few I won in 2015) can be seen here.
 
 

 
 
For the Honk Kong figure I used the same color scheme as for the Airfix one. I had to remove a lot of flash from this one, but that is completely normal for this kind of figures. But after all I find it worth the try. He doesn't look that bad.
 
 



 
 
I hope you like them.

  3. I just popped over from the Benno`s Figure Forum Peter.
    Things are shacking a bit on the screen on your page. I like the figures very much,i guess one is directing traffic towards Arnhem. Very well painted and the red,looks red enough for me. BB

  8. You bloomin' rotter!

    Excellent job on these Peter. These are 1/32 scale? I want these in 1/72 or 1/76!

    The webbing looks spot on and they scrub up rather well indeed.

    Full marks.

    1. Thanks Paul! I didn't know about the downsized 1/32 figures. But someone on FB told me so now I'm curious to see them somewhere. Maybe some day! And thank you for the compliment about the webbing.

    1. Thanks Michael! I was very pleased with the win because I didn't win that much last year in the duels.
