I fully second this. Looking good. Maybe just tone down the eagles a teenie bit.... the seem to be a bit too shiny, but it's just a detail to mention.

Looking sharp Rick, Keep it Up !!

Hi Rick!! Your figures looks good!! I like the newspapers especially...... How did you make them?? Just a thought: The figures seem to be rather glossy.......

for the first figures you`ve ever painted that`s some very impressive work
love to see the dio of it

funny thing is that by seeing your fieldkitchen an idea for a diorama rose too because i`ve got also a fieldkitchen for years actually. I bought it then and build it but I never had an idea for putting it into a dio. I`ll post the story of it later
Thanks for being inspirational

Keep up the good work

I actually think Im gonna buy this kit now. Quite an interesting little dio it would make. Are german uniforms really that green?
For your first figures these turned out relly well. A nice base now and you have it sorted!!

Thanks for all good comments!
The newspaper is made from photo's of a newspaper from ww2, you can find it on the net.
If you like it i can send it you.
the unforms I've painted with humbrol 105. Is this the right green?
I'm now searching for the right color for the german feldgendarm, and for the wooden boxes. Can anybody give them.
Thanks,
Rick
