Let's wait and see... But actually...

What are these two up to?

Yes, of course Jan, Parcel needed expert handling to get everything to fit ,and also wrap up the box.
It will be popped in the Royal Mail first thing today. I love it when a good plan comes together.
Whatever would I do without these two pals? :-D BB

And I still think you have painted the most modern figures in the parade, not most recent though. :-)

Thanks Paul! I also prefer working with experts. ;-)

I am going to write a message just after the parcel has arrived.

You are right Gunnar,those bouncing Bunny-like Astronaughts ,and marching Guards are a modern day conception of a devised plan,even though rare antiques. The Napoleonic Prussains I painted too,will always be seen as much older in spite of them having been produced by Hat,in the recent year 2004.

THE AIRMAIL PACKAGE!

Having insured against damage and loss,i have a tracking barcode on my receipt ,so via the Internet I know exactly where Jan`s parcel is at any one given time day or night simply by clicking a few buttons on my PC. That gives me peace of mind knowing that I can claim lots of cash, and also replace easily items from my Collection, if the worst happens. I always photograph packages before sending them out,and always advise that if damage to the box is evident on delivery, that the package be photographed too, before opening the box.This is good reliable evidence,because they can be sent via e-mail to reinforce any need to claim damages. It is not a perfect world we have to live in,and things happen. BB

Good to know.

Unfortunately I can not see the pictures in the forum but only at the host. But maybe a Moderator can help.

Very nice Frenchmen that you have painted. Thank you ver much and I hope to see you at the FIGZ. :occasion: :occasion: :wave: :wave: :beer: :camera:

And here you can see the "Paul Parade". I fetch them today and all the men arrived here without any loss.

So a big hooray, hooray, hooray, goes to Fiddlers Wood. What a great number of figures painted. Thank you so much, once again.

And now they wait for support from Sweden! :mrgreen:

:thumbup: Now you get to play with the toy soldiers Jan.
:mrgreen: How many times did they fall over?

One of your figures deserted, so missed the regiments send off!
Mrs B found him hiding out on a comfy chair quite relaxed.
As I figure it out a deserter will hardly be missed. :(
As he receives each day white feathers perhaps he might set out for Bonn,or that bridge to far?
He might well have many an adventure, in an effort to redeem himself. BB

Unfortunately my band is out of tune! Even Paul (BB) would be scared off his feet if they tried to play. But other figures will come when they are ready.

Yes, really beautyful figures. But as Paul said already: The Parade os for marching figures and the idea is that you send them to me. And I am not sure if this is your intension.I am going to build a diorama and all entries will be fixed and presented for the first time at the FIGZ, the anual meeting of the forum members and all other hobby-frirnds in Arnhem (NL). For further informations look at the Group Building topic and in the orher GB Sections. There are explanations and examples of last years Group Builds.

Hello

just trying a new way how to send pictures which can be seen. It does seem to work.
I'm :P
They have new heads, believe it or not. At the bottom there's a close up of the former heads whch were rejected. I spare you the gruesome pictures of the guys without heads.
