The WW2 British soldier in N.Africa

Recommended Posts

Well, by project for putting together a British soldier in N.Africa has taken a huge leap. I still have some stuff coming, and still need some stuff Like boots and gaiters. But thanks to @DAK D I am nearly there. Here are the results so far. I chose a sitting mannequin due to space, I'm running out of room! Lucky its just me an the cat's right now! I just received the following original gear, shirt,shorts, very nice 7th armored patch, hose, side cap. I put the Thompson in the photo's just because he looked naked or a depressed prisoner of war with out a weapon! :)

Looking good guys @Afrikakorpsrat64, @Bil4338. I must try and find room for a mannequin. :)

@Mav352 Thanks! I live in a very small place, but it's also just me and my cats. But Im running out of room! I would still like to get one more mannequin for my US Marine.

You've got a small room?! Mine must be minimalist then!

yep, I added the shadow, a bit smudged now though, might give him a tidy up.was thinking of a US impression next, had the DR up for a good while.
