Just a little aside from the numerous other projects I have got going on. I have had this figure as WIP on my bench for ages and finally decided to finish it.

I think the pose is a little odd so I kept putting it off. Anyway, it is from the Dragon battle of the hedgerows set with a replacement Hornet head.

Strike another one from the list !

Lovely!

The arms look a tad too long, but humans are notoriously randomly shaped

That's a REALLY good job on that figure- If I recall correctly this set is one of the earlier sets and the detail is not great so you have achieved a great result

Mark - Cheers, hadn't noticed the arm thing - although something made me give him hairy forearms !

Pat - Thanks, you are right, this is one of Dragons first figure sets and they don't stack up at all against their more modern releases. If I remember correctly, this figure is in the old orange plastic. (Thanks again for the info on the Dublin model shops BTW).

I really am a sucker for punishment with these old Dragon figures
