Hi , friends.

These are the first pictures of the test figures.
It's a tribute to this duo that made me laugh a lot watching their movies.
Friends of the forum, of my generation, should remember.
For new members who don't know, I recommend watching YouTube on the lonk below.

They are classic toy figures above.

It was very good to see the castings you made. BB

Hi friends. :-D
Many thanks to all for the comments. I'm glad you enjoyed it and that several forum members had the same childhood as me, watching this duo.

Michel , dykio and Marvin.
Send me in private your names and addresses. If you are not in a hurry, when I can, I send copies of the figures.

As the hobby is for joy and pleasure and not to get angry, I now only send numbers to known forum members.
The reason :
I sent twice free for work and production, just post office reimbursement, member SOBREVIEVIENDO 1 request. After receiving the request, he did not reply to further messages and disappeared from the forum.

Below are photos of the parts and my finished duo, waiting for the painting, along with other legionaries.

Thank you very much for your kind offer - I have sent a personal message! :mrgreen:

I love the use of the mules - far more historically appropriate for these legionnaire figures. If I hadn't had such fun with the camels I would have regretted not doing the same. Can I ask where did you get the mule figures from?

Hi , Marvin.

I showed how I made the mules in the topic Fort Sahara Airfix.
