Hello all,

Finally finished this one - Ultracast's 54mm RAF Pilot (Mid-war) beautifully sculpted as usual by Mike Good. I modified him slightly with a scarf and "Canada" shoulder flashes, making him an RCAF airman operating from a forward airfield (B4) in Normandy:








As always, comments and critiques are much appreciated.


Cheers,

Hi,
I think the pictures are not very good, but the figure will be much better. I like a lot, congratulations on the result.
Regards,
Fernando Sancho.

Looks great!!!
I agree that pictures are not doing much justice to the great work that you performed. I like a lot how all painted elements are working together.
Great work!!!
