Another Project Finished

I just completed a figure for my freind Richard at Tamiya. I have been working on this one since April this year (2007 is almost done!). This is the Mirage 200mm 101st Airborne that was changed to 82nd- Richard is partial to the 82nd Airborne because he was in the 82nd Airborne (as well as 1st Rgr Bn.)!

During the Bulge, on the Northern shoulder of the battle, the 82nd fought elements of the 1st, 2nd, 9th, 10th & 12th SS Panzer Divisions. According to 82 veterans the 101st fought old men and ladies. (not confirmed!).

It is a resin figure painted with acrylics and opils for the flesh. I modified the base- cause the kit one sucked. Have a Happy New Year!!!
Here is a picture of figure number two for the T-34 Diorama. This is a S&T figure, sculpted by John. Not a lot of parts, fairly quick to paint. Nice figures are fun to paint- they just seem to come together nicely.
