Though luckily the aircraft didn't open fire, but just flew on.

    He has so many vivid memories, though not all bad. He remembers the community spirit. And things like the Italian prisoners sent to work on his uncle's farm, who were just happy to be out of the war. No one guarding them because they had no desire to escape.
    Wow those events he experienced would definitely stay with anyone. So grateful right now

    Finally picked this one up using one of the Ebay discount codes.

    Excellent figure, all around. I was pleasantly surprised with the head sculpt, which I thought would not be as nicely painted as it is.

    Box and presentation were impressive as well, with the wrap around box flap held by a magnet and the foam inserts to hold all of accessories. No plastic trays here. This is my first figure from Alert Line and I won't hesitate to order any figures from them that I hold an interest on.

    I had previously picked up an extra uniform loose from TA and will be setting up a second figure with the extras included. I highly recommend this figure if you are an aviation or military history buff (as I am...)

    A good discussion is like a miniskirt; Short enough to maintain interest and long enough to cover the subject.
