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 ;-)
