I've had this idea for ages... so rather than sit on it longer I've knocked up a demo...
So get the urge and join in... don't worry about going to town on the graphics.. just try and get the figure in that old classic 1/32nd pose!!

You get the idea.... so get busy! Twisted Evil Twisted Evil

Great idea my friend & such a lovely example of a British classic. Do tell me though, is that a lightly stubble goatee he has on the go? It's very catchy going by the picture. Such a great look.

I don't have any airfix, not even sure where I'd get some, can I try it with some little green army men?

Just google images for Airfix soldiers and try and get your A.M or Joe to look like the one on the box art , I think that`s the gist of the idea . They done a good range so you will have lots of options I imagine .

Is that a captured Russian mosin nagant your Para is using Slackers ? Awesome idea and post .

This is a great idea Slack, you've posted some very encouraging photos to wet everyone's appetite. This post also has nostalgia attached to it. I have some 1/32 scale Britains in my display cabinet for guidance, I'll be back Smile

Great idea slack and great pics too! Ian's comment about using green army men reminded me of something, back when the 40th AM was released a bunch if customisers were given a figure to mess around with for a competition and one of the entries was this.....

Sorry for deviating off topic a bit but I thought I'd share Very Happy

Great idea Slack, although I used to collect the 1/72's

Here's my go at the Foreign Legion



Hope you can see the figure, tricky to photograph in that dark blue plastic!
