French Foreign Legion

Posted by vellek on 29 Jun 2015, 17:05

The Airfix Foreign Legion set is one of the favorites from my younger years. I remember jumping on my bicycle and pedaling to the hobby shop, even before the credits to 'March or Die' had finished rolling on the TV. These are not from the 70s, they are from the reissued Fort Sahara set. Some of their mates from ESCI fill in the ranks.

No diorama for these fellows yet, Santi. It's back to Nappies for me for the rest of the summer. :winky:

Thanks for all your kind words, everyone.
