RFC Pilot & Observer, 1916

I picked up one of the new releases from The Fusilier at the Atlanta Show and moved it to the front of my workbench. I decided to place it with a previously released Fusilier figure to represent a Royal Flying Corps pilot and observer from the Great War. They are certainly dressed for the cold temperatures aloft. The figure on the right is the new release. These are resin kits sculpted, in 1/24th scale, by my old friend Steve Warrilow. It is nice to see The Fusilier releasing kits again.

Getting ready for my upcoming trip to Atlanta. Next weekend is AMFS' 36th annual figure show. The club always puts on an excellent show and I look forward to it every year. This year I will be presenting a seminar on creating "wedgies" and on weathering figures with oils. It will be presented Saturday morning at 10 AM. If you are at the show I encourage you to attend. Here is a link for more information on the club and the show:

I am calling him done and ready for the Atlanta Show! The picture is not the greatest but you get the idea. A nice , simple conversion really changes the look of the Andrea kit. Finished with oil paint.
