Attached are several pictures for the gallery. The first is a converted
Dragon 1/35 modern US figure. He's redone in the form of a Marine light
Browning gunner of 1918. The second is another converted Dragon kit. The
figures are from a set of Marines in Viet Nam. I reworked them to depict a
soldier of the 372d Infantry Regiment, 93d Division attached to the French
157th "Red Hand" Division in 1918. The last picture is a 1/16 bust of Ernst
Udet from the Dragon DVII kit. List members were able to supply all the
details about colors of piping and other uniform details. I should've
painted what I thought was a leather jacket as cloth coveralls, I think.
Here are some new figure photos for the WWI model gallery. The British
soldier is a Scale Link 54mm figure, the Frenchman an ICM 1/35 figure from a
Franco-Prussian War set--updated to 1914, and the American is a WWII Tamiya
with the Scale Link helmet and some minor changes.
I'm a digest subsciber to the WWI Modeling Mailing List and very infrequent
Attached are some JPEGs of a diorama and a figure that I recently
completed. I'd sure appreciate it if you'd post them on the images page.
I received lots of information from list members when I enquired about
the 37mm gun that is the focal point of the diorama. The helpfulness of
the list members is incredible!
