Great work! Figure painting is a difficult skill to master but you've nailed it. What scale are they?

Hi Terry,

They are 75mm metal figures. My dad was in the 89 Cav, 9th AD and came under Patton's command at various times during the Bulge.

Nicely done. It looks very much like George and I love the leather jacket and Willie came out pretty good too.
