Very nice Darryl, looks great, your figures really do finish this off nicely...

Cheers Ed, the headless loader is a shame but I've got a couple of spares to play with, just annoying. 

 

Considering how poor they were they don't look to bad. It's a love hate thing with figures, really like having them on a build but can be so frustrating and still a long way to go.

As is said the only way to improve is practice, I'll give each figure a couple of attempts if necessary to get something acceptable (ish) and that's it otherwise I'd just get bogged down on the same thing and then mojo starts to drift...

Excellent build Darryl. It just needs a NAAFI or Weavers van in the background to make it complete.

Cheers John, the thing takes up enough room as it is!

That's the problem with this base lark!

Cheers Keith,

The idea or inspiration behind the base are the ranges at Lulworth, just annoyed over losing the leaders head!

 

Thanks fellas, atb.

Just to throw this in the mix:-

Early Dan Dare British helmets from Hornet.

 

 

Thanks Dan, I spotted those, I suspect they are probably more accurate and appropriate than the beret just figured the beret looked better out of the turret.

 

I assume the helmet would be obligatory whilst pottering around?
