Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

I can see why she is unhappy.. You do not have a couple of those wonderful Leather ammo pouches on him. Also if he was sporting a very nice Carcano rifle on his back. That might help also.. See your wonderful Bride is like all Brides.. she wants something done all the way...

Now you set up a machine gun nest with sandbags (A little Barbed Wire) and a crew served weapon right aside of him. A few More manikins also. And I can promise you a tear in her eye of Pride & happiness and no longer any complaining about the original..

Hey that is a wonderful display..

Bustina (field cap) is a little too big for this head. Number is 60 however beautiful one.
