RNLI LIFE BOAT CREWMAN 1/76.
This is an idea I had a while a go.I wanted to paint a Royal national lifeboat institute crewman because I think they do a cracking job and I live in the town on the south coast where they have there HQ.
They are a voluntary organisation and are funded solely by the public so if you want to donate follow the link RNLI,.
I used an Airfix NATO ground crew, pilot because it was the closest match I could find.
I did a bit of research on the net to find the right colours and after 8 pints of larger(accounts for the rubbish face) during the rugby last night I decided to finish him.I am now paying the price for it.The wife got me sugar soaping the walls today,no respite!!!!
The base is from Willis and the background is off the net a very simple dio and nod and wink to some very brave men and women.
