The US Paratrooper is spectacular and is a very worthy winner, but the runners-up are of a very high standard too. Congratulations to all.

0Great build, and the pant job is ecxellent. I'm especially happy to see you've finished this, because this will hopefully mean, that you'll have the time solving my missing payment issue.

Wrong guy Jacob, I am not the editor of SMMI, I just have the same name and because of this I get a lot of messages like this. Unfortunately me being mixed up with this guy is very common and it doesn't do me any favours at all. I'm not having a go at you, but please be sure who you are addressing your frustration at.

Please everyone refer any issues like this to ;

It's been awhile since this was posted, but I believe that at least the second and third place figures are indeed 35th scale. I am also of the opinion that the winner is too, but m not 100% sure on that... So don't quote me

My paratrooper is indeed 1/35.
