Next in queue on the workbench is another masterpiece from Young Miniatures depicting a youthful looking US Marine RTO(Radio Telephone Operator) at the Battle of Hue in 1968. Hopefully I can get some uninterrupted time this weekend to refine on the painting.

Young Miniatures - Gebirgsjäger, Caucasus, Summer 1942


Managed to sneak some time off last week to work on this popular kit from Young Miniatures.

 

I reconstructed the binocular sights and replaced the cigarette with a calabash pipe scratched built from epoxy putty and wire. 

Cheers,
