Arrowhead RAF figures

#1

Post by Tim R-T-C »

Hi all,

Recently picked up this set but I can't figure out what some of the folk are up to!

Image

I get the classic deckchair pose, the man with the bats and the dog too! But why are so many doing lunges and who are the guys with rifles? RAF Regiment?

Also wondering, do people seperate figures from bases at all and what tools would give the best results?

Thanks

TM

TH some of the figures are refuelling, some plugging or unplugging the trolley acc and get more are rearming the aircraft. I leave them on the base to paint them, then cut off the base and put them on a clear base.
You were lucky to get a set, I think they are now sold out.

I think the two guys with the frying pans are engaged in either catering or airfield defense.
The other pair made sten guns from Red Cross parcels are no doubt a couple of escapees. Then there’s the chap lying on his side playing the guitar and a bemused Mrs Shilling with a bevy of suitors. The sphinxes joggers and assorted recumbents are an added bonus.

Sphinxes. Anyone for a Western Desert diorama with one of these reclining under the wing of a Kittyhawk IV? :P

Here are some pictures. rather extream close ups showing how rubbish my painting is. However I think it shows they are pretty well cast and could add life to a diorama.
