From GillesW - SEMPER FI (5 Points)

Welcome to the Jungle!
This is the first model I use to find the color chart I would try on my USMC  Company for Bolt Action. In fact it's a GI body from the GI sprues, the other parts are from the USMC sprues I bought recently (during the  Warlord black friday). If you like it and you find the colors OK, I'll put the color chart on my blog.

My project is do as many conversions I can.

Here is the 2nd lieutenant Jethro Gibbs, he is unshaven while he spent some time in the jungle with his patrol:


The camera will turn around him


The basing is simple to be re usable in Korea or in the western front



Next batch, next tuesday.

  3. A very fitting figure for the name. And a very nice paint job really adds a lot od character to the figure.

  10. Nice figure. If you want the pictures on a white background to appear brighter, you can adjust the cameras Exposure Value (EV) to +1.0 or whatever value you like. You can also adjust it in a photo editing program, such as GIMP.
