Linus, looking forward to seeing your Tempest. That's one high on my wish list.
Update on my build so far. And a little lesson in reading the instructions!
So, while putting together the four figures I was amazed at how easy and flawless the fit was. They really are great. And then I came to the officer and found what I believed to be a serious flaw. His legs were narrower than the torso and he looked ridiculous. So I set about correcting it with some milliput. I glued the legs to the torso at the correct width and filled the gap in with milliput and sculpted in the creases.
I was feeling pretty pleased with myself at this. It turned out rather well.
And then when looking at the instructions, I realised WHY his hips were so narrow. It's because the bottom parts of his jacket fit over.
Luckily, the milliput was still quite soft and had not fully set so I was able to pick it all out and reassemble him correctly.
So, I've made a mental note to read instructions properly in the future.
Here's where I'm currently at.
The only minor annoyance with this kit I'm finding is with the weapons. Don't get me wrong there is nothing at fault with the moulding, detail or HUGE selection. But with the fact that all but one of the Enfields has fixed bayonets. Ok for soldiers advancing, but not when at ease as in this set. Should be easy to trim off, but would be nice to have at least another one without.
May have to raid the spares. I know have some No.4's but not sure about SMLE's.
Based on this set I have ordered myself the full range of ICM's WW1 figures. Especially looking forward to the Turkish Infantry release later in the year.
