Lovely work Richard.

But what has that rider got in his right hand

Ray gun?
Dead pigeon?
Wrap in tinfoil?
Black & Decker drill?

Sorry my eyesight cant see this detail and looks like light is reflecting off it giving it a metallic glare?
Of course its just my eyesight playing tricks.....

time for a nap

Fat German on supply horse is a great model. Of course not at all modelled after character in famous WW2 film! :D

Cheers Fred.
