REVELL MODERN BRITISH INFANTRY 1/72.
I am back blogging again,nearly finished decorating the hall.It would have been quicker to have got Michelangelo when he did the Sistine chapel.
Anyway this is another older work (just to show you I am still alive) from Revell Modern British infantry, a bloody brilliant set that I have converted to bits.
The set is a more 1/76 than 1/72 but most of the best tanks and trucks are that scale anyway.Or you could use them for Gurkha's, borrow some kukri's from the Airfix World War II Gurkha's, put it on the webbing job done.
The Bergen cover is just a blob of GW green stuff pushed on the back of the figure,a bit unsteady but if I glue on a dio not a problem.
As you can see I was missing mold lines back then as well, so nothing has change there!
I think I used Vallejo Iraqi sand and saddle brown for the camo and Russian green for the webbing.
A good wash of GW mud brown finished him off.
I tried to paint some insignia on him on the sleeves,to keep Al happy he is meant to be a Royal marine.
Due to the lack of body armour he will have to be from the first gulf war.
Why no other company has made a set of modern Brits in plastic I will never know.It looks increasingly likely that Caesar has binned there planned set,BBBBOOOO HHHHIIISSSS!!!!
