Airfix US Infantry

Here we are, those Airfix US Marines/Infantry completed.  There's an interesting split in this set.  Some of them are scaled down versions of the Airfix 1/32 US infantry, and are noticeably larger than the rest.  The poses in this set, and particularly the smaller ones, are excellent, really convincing.  The two grenadiers are particularly good.

These first three are scaled down from the 1/32 sculpts 


No cartwheeling or limp wristed grenade throwers here (yes, I'm looking at you Esci and Italeri!). 

A random Revell Paratrooper that needed a base

    1. Thanks, I just switched between khaki and green grey so it wouldn't all look too uniform.

    1. Thanks for saying so, although there seem to be so many variations in US uniforms that it's hard to tell sometimes!
