Matchbox and Atlantic figures so well painted, and those conversions :love:

Great work :thumbup:

These Atlantic figures are something for the "Oldies" topic ;-)

Ah, I see you have fallen into the easily made mistake of showing the Scot from the 51st (Highland) Division looking as if he is surrendering. You are supposed to convert a bit of sprue so that it looks like a telegraph pole that he has just uprooted with his bare hands and is throwing at some hapless Italians :-D

Great job with the painting - love the Monty figure :thumbup:

Hmm, I seem to remember that the Matchbox Africa Korps set also had a German super soldier, this one holding a Panzer III above his head.... :-D

A fantastic job of painting yet again. Only thing is, you should be painting Kiwi's, not Aussies next... :lol:
