Steffen showed them here first in the Forum, but the chance to review ICM's latest Luftwaffe figures just proves how right he was - they really are excellent!

Hi Steffen

Sadly, seeing as Jim sent them to me, I guess there were no takers... but their loss is my gain - these are superb figures!

All the best

There are not many who volunteer for the jobs .. but the same persons begrudge you because you get "free" samples ...... I know from experience...

have a nice weekend

Hi again

Yes, it's certainly disappointing, because Jim offered a pretty unique opportunity to new writers - we'd normally look to people with an established record of submitting articles and reviews regularly before offering samples.

Still, I expect there'll be other opportunities in the future and, hopefully, people will be less shy about stepping forward, because I'm sure there's a lot of writing talent among our members waiting to be tapped.

All the best

Rowan

I just would like to notice that there are 7 separate heads plus 2 molded already on the shoulders, so you can use these to modify some "other nation" mechanics in overalls to become german mechanics.

Also, the "older" guy is not likely to be an adjutant, as his shoulder boards have the texture of a major or oberst. More like an air base or geschwader commander.

These figures look great. It would be interesting to see them in full living color.
