British Rocket Troops
« on: August 21, 2018, 03:52:34 PM »
Found these in Croppers CHEAP - thought they would make Zak "The Rocket Man " happy as another model for his missile sig.
They are 1/72 scale with 4 sprue the same in the box.
One will be done as the instructions the next with a combined ladder/rocket launcher i found on the internet and the last one as Indian troops firing at Wellington before the Napoleonic Wars.  Before you ask yes I did say 4 sprue -- gave one to Zak so expect it will be finished by now as another great model.
Now off to sit in the garden with "she who must be obeyed" and start to remove some of the flash from the figures.

I thought they would be finished the speed you work -- but heho -- it only goes to prove the rest of them WRONG when they say you are not human -- hohoho
Flash removed and a coat of primer - now off for tea, its a hard life this model making.

A start made on the Indian troops of Tipu Sultan -- frogging removed on the jacket and a short skirt made wine foil.

Hat removed and a shorter skirt added -- now to let it go solid and use some filler to make it all smooth

Are these modelled on 'Hussien Bolt' by any chance, looking at the pose?

I have watched them for a while and they have not moved let alone run fast.
