Nice one Richard....... :clapping: :clapping: :clapping:
Greatness lies not in where we stand, but in what direction we are moving. We must sail sometimes with the wind, and sometimes against it, but sail we must, and not drift nor lie at anchor.

Great work Richard. As hard as Goumiers are to paint, the end result's allways worth it.

The Blitz ones are finer quality than Friend of Foe (not a criticism :beg: ) I also like the fact Stuart gave them Mausers and not just Enfields.
