1/76 Scale Arm of the Law

Airfix 'Marines' have now had their highlight and are awaiting proper basing.

In the meantime I thought I'd quickly post this chap, who's now complete apart from painting the base.

This is the greatcoated officer from the venerable Matchbox US Infantry set.  I thought I'd have a go at an MP for a change.  Can't guarantee it's authentic, I've probably got all kinds of uniform details wrong, and my freehand is nowhere near as steady as I'd like (or my clearing up of that mould line!), but I'm ridiculously pleased with the result anyway ;-)


  1. And well you should be. Great work.

  2. Love the letters on the helmet, top notch.

  3. Really kick arse job. I don't think there is any one way to get the markings wrong for the helmet as there was so many different variations.

    Well done.

  4. This is the kind of detail I love. Excellent job.

  5. Thanks guys. Seemed a good way to use a pose that otherwise wasn't the most useful one in the box!
