Someone said there were no 1/12 figures, well I'll put that right

There is a piece missing, the finial type piece on top of the helmet that holds the horsehair crest, so I'll have to scratch something

Hi Ratch,

 

this is going to be a big bugger!!! Too big for me, that's for sure, but it is definitely going to be rather impressive.

You are lucky it is not the trumpet that is missing!

 

Cheers.

JR

Great to see a 1/12 figure in the mix Ratch looking forward to this,

RIght, this is getting a bit Austin Powers but if I understand correctly, a gentleman in uniform wearing patent leather black thigh boots is an entrant and the first comment is, he's a bit bugger, too big for me but he hasn't lost his trumpet. Time for a song, 'Mamna told me not to come' (Three Dog Night 1970, ARC as opposed to Airfix)

Nice going Rattch, glad we’ve now got one of these large figures in the mix. Still missing a Motorbike or two other types, however it’s all building up to an impressive list of Airfix Classics on here. Good going ladies and gents. 

 

Cheers.. Dave

Great choice, I do remember making several of these as a kid as gifts for other family members, It'd be an interesting experience to revisit the kits again. Nice work Ratch!

Thanks Mark, the Airfix 1/12 figures are a nice set. I'd like more of them (e.g. Nelson, Wellington, Montgomery, Churchill), but I doubt we'll see their like again 😢

ICM does a nice set of 1/16 scale figures:

This is very neat work, Ratch. Are you brush painting freehand without masking? - needs a steady hand!

Yup, all paint laid down with a hairy stick and no masking tape involved :innocent:

Very impressive Ratch. They certainly look like a good test for ones hand brushing skills, which must be very rewarding when then turn out so well. Well done mate.
