Thanks very much i built the whole thing then used a can of the wifes hairspray and a cigarette lighter to make a flamethrower kept firing at it till i got the right effect.

then i added some black smoke and white ash pigment made by MIG to give it that extra little touch

the figure that will be approaching is the following



which i think fits perfectly with the bunker

cheers

Simon,

I like the look of that figure, who makes it?

One thing I did notice is the surface texture on the back. Is this the quality of the casting ? You might want to smooth that out before painting.

Nice work so far. The one thing you'll want to redo is his left hand. Try to get it to grasp that Thompson. Firing like that will send it right up into his face causing sever pain. It has one heck of a kick and travels very bad. Sometimes they would hold them sideways so it would travel a spred shot, right to left. Still a cool looking vignett, hope to see more.
