Airfix US Paras

A great little set. A good range of poses and virtually no flash to speak of. Fun to paint and they have hardly dated at all :-D

  3. They look excellent Paul. I still love this set, one of Airfix's best, even if there are too many Tommy guns (and why the crawling guy has a Sten gun I will never know).

  4. Cool, one of my first sets so many years ago, you're right they've hardly aged at all!

  5. Nice work as usual. I used to have these in larger scale as a kid, sort of 5cm tall in soft plastic.

  6. These look great, Paul, are they 1/32nd scale? I have some of Airfix's re-released WW2 German Infantry and Brit Commandos which took me back again too...

    Regards,

  8. Are these the original 1/72nd set? I had that one as a kid - loved 'em. These look slightly different though. Dean
