Thanks edo - glad you like it. The figures are ICM British Infantry in Gas Masks(1917) and I modified the equipment with some sculpting and extra straps from lead sheet.
Cheers,
Gary

Fabulous effort- did you spay paint or brush the camouflage? Cheers Matt

Thanks Matt - the camo was sprayed on and I used a series of masks to through the different colours. Then all the patches got a thin line of Vallejo dark grey acrylic, which I brushed on.
Cheers,
Gary

Magnificent feat of modelling as always Gary, the figures are so real it's almost eerie and the detailing is exceptional. I was going to say I hope to see this one along with your last several in Edmonton in June but I suspect the Pandemic may have other plans for the event. Keep up the outstanding work and take care in these challenging times.
Cheers,
Lance

Thanks Lance! Glad you like it. Hopefully we can meet up at a model show after all this passes us by.
Cheers,

Just fantastic!  Love the photo with the  gas vapors. That camouflage pattern would test my brush painting skills.
There are only two states to be in:  Queensland and blotto.

Thanks Gaz - appreciate your feedback. The camo was actually done with an airbrush, and I masked each colour as I went. The black lines had to be painted with a fine brush, though!
Cheers
