Thanks. Moni. One large pack of brain freezing weather on its way. I think right now it is in the Tasmania area...
Have just filled the gaps in the join at the shoulders and will get some primer on them as soon as that has dried.

well I got some paint on the figures. Just need a bit of dry-brushing for a few highlights and put their lids on.
The gun parts have also been painted. TWICE. The first time the colour was far to green,
the second time although a bit light, works for me. The paints are Mig AMMO and are supposed to be accurate. Well they'r not.
Has anyone tried the "true colours" from AK. Although the price is a bit high and the portions small I might give them a try if the colours are true...

I am sorry to say it but Why is it that Figures made by the same manufacturer as the model they are designed to fit, dont fit?
A shame as they are quite good. They just dont fit!

I had the same problem with an Half track I did a bit ago Ian.
Your build is looking good though.

Things like the arm position, i can understand, up to a point, making them so they only fit one way would be a start, but feet that don't reach the pedals.... Their bums and backs fit perfectly in the seat but when there is 3-4 mm of air betwixt boot and pedal.... Disappointing.
Anyway enough about that.
Thinking of other ways of getting the best out of them....
