Ok folks, just gotta put on a flat coat and mount this guy to some terrain and I'm done.
The figure is 120MM (1/16th) and is by S&T Products. It's a USMC Bar Gunner at Chosin Resivoir in 1950.
I should have him done and mounted in a day or two. Will post finished photos in the Figure Forum.

Excellent paint job. He may even look better with a matte coating to remove the sheen. Hard to tell from a picture. Nice work !

WOW!!!!!!! You humble me with your talents. I am not a big fan of figures because I could never get them to look real. You my friend are the Master!! If you ever get tired of having this figure around your house can I adopt it? #:-) LOL Fantastic work Bravo and six cheers

Wow right back at you all.
Thanks for all the kind words, this figure has been finished as of about 15 min ago, I'll shoot final photos and post them sometime on Wednesday.
This really was an incredible kit and was a really fun build.

Kglack: Love the photoshop work man, I have never seen or heard of that book, BUT I have another S&T Chosin Marine to build so I may have to find it just for that guy.

Thanks all!!
