Figures
I built a lot of figures over the period many of which I converted for the Somme dioramas and I built my first stand alone chap on his way along the Kokoda Trail. Maybe not a show stopped but I like him a lot.

When I was building the Somme dioramas I came across 2 figures from AC Models which I thought would suit. I saw them advertised as 1/35 scale but they were in fact 54mm figures so ended up getting built as stand alone chaps.

Happily several manufacturers have now started producing 1/35 scale World War One figures. In plastic MasterBox Ltd, ICM and Tamiya all have new options in the WW1 era. In resin we have see new offerings form Resicast, D Day Miniatures and Stalingrad, which should be welcome additions for many. Below are some pictures of these fairly recent releases I'm working on for future projects.

Happy modelling to all.

Hi Rick and Mike, Again thanks for looking in. The great thing about modelling is the constant learning process. Even after 10 years each new build brings a new beginning, a new challenge. Cheers Al
