About Jim Starkweather (staff_Jim)

thanks Jim for this nice review. This et looks really good, not only the subject or all the conversion it could allow, but the sculpting and casting looks REALLY clean. Masterbox really confirms its first rank position, whereas Dragon is sunking (speking of figures). Best, Julien

Hi everybody, When I first saw this set I got this brainwave of putting em in a diorama (vignette) of a POW-camp, with a barrack and/or guard tower. And maybe even a simultanous escape through a tunnel out from the barrack, with the boxing match acting as a diversion for the guards. But I don't know if a thing like that ever happened. Of course is the airfield option also great with a Custom Dioramas tent or a Bofors. Regards, Anne (dude, iam sorry)
