I really like this one and coming with a seal of approval from you. I really like the natural casual pose of the figure. I will say that at first glance I thought it looked a lot like a Scottish game keeper who scared the C--P out of me as a kid, when he caught me catching pheasants.

Hi Guys,

Thanks for looking in.

A few more in this order of dress would be neat, lots of potential in this one.

Very nice looking figure, and useful in so many ways. Well done.

Is there some technical reason for having the pour plug on top of the head, instead of out the neck. It seams so much harder to remove without damaging the beret.

The question isn't OT. The reason pour plugs are often positioned on top of the head is to fascilitate the undercuts of the headgear and allow for easy removal from the mold - and adds to the longevity of the mold.

Hi Guys,

Here is my effort so far on the figure:





I used him as an officer. I like this figure a lot, he could fit just about anywhere, bit more work do do but you get the idea.
