Para Progress

So today I had some progress on my Flytrap Factory 15mm Royal Marines.  Now, I love Marines, USMC, Royal Marines, they both make me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.  But my biggest love  of the British Army are Para's.  So I decided that I would do these up as Para's instead of  Marines.  I'm sure there is some kit differences, but these are Marines.








 In a previous post I did a quick review of these minis.  Now, after a bit of work with them I can tell you these are indeed nice figures.  They are not as nice as Peter Pigs USMC, but they certainly are a very close second.  The molding is clean, with very little flash on my samples.  The weapons look good with the L85A2 with scope and underslung Grenade Launcher looks fantastic.  Even the grills around the barrel are present.  The only things that I could nit pick about are the lack of Cargo pockets on both sides of the pants.  They only seem to be present on some of the mini's, not all.  Another wonder is was appears to be a patch or pocket top molded on the upper right arm on most but on both arms on some.  Any ideas?  I haven't seen the Old Glory Modern British Infantry in person, but im going to say these are better just by the pictures I've seen.  Lets hope Flytrap Factory continues with there WARFIGHTER series, modern German Falshirmjagers, US Army and Canadians would be great!


Also, cause I got a new HD camera for Christmas and haven yet used it I thought I would redo some of my earlier picks of Peter Pigs FABULOUS USMC.







The only thing I wish I could redo on these are the rifles.  I'm not licking the Grey/white outlining so any suggestions would be great!
That's it for now, I have another 6 Para's to do up so hopefully next set of days off.

Great to read about your progress. I'm awaiting on my delivery of FTF Brits and will paint up in MTP. I'm also painting up PP USMC and have gone for VMC Seagreen washed black and then highlighted in original base colour for small arms. Will post photos shortly. Keep up the good work.
