Great figure. I'm not mad about working with White metal but there's not much clean up on Hornet figures.

He'd make a good Barrack Orderly Sgt, MP or vehicle crew beside a cleaned up tank on parade.

A good review Alan of a figure I can hear shouting just by looking at the stance.

Thanks for the review, Al.

Bit dissappointing he's not holding a cup of tea, but that should be easy enough to add to his right hand

Yes, he could be another tea drinker but a set of orders in his hand would be better!

Hi John,

They have some interesting figures, aimed more at the figure painter than the diorama builder but useable nonethelesss.

The build of the figures is spot on as is the way the uniforms hang on the body.
