Very nicely detailed and painted figures. Love the folding stock .30 carbine. I have an M1 Carbine but with the regular walnut stock. Great round for plinking!

Thanks. It's 1:16 / 120mm. They will be support for my Shermans on RC meetings ;) I'm still struggle with painting faces.

Kaczor!
Never a worry with the face painting! No matter how skilled you get, ( and I know this ), one slip of a brush and you wind up with 'Crazy Joe'.
Beautiful work, Doc.
regards,
Painless

Even better at that size :thumbup: What editing tool did you use to cut-out the troopers from background? Photoshop?
