WWI pilot and observer

I love biplanes and even more, I love painting figures, so I have been collecting all the RFC figures I can find and slapping on the paint so they can liven up my biplane models. This pair now sit with my Wingnut Wings RE8 in Australian markings. They are from Model Cellar and are truly wonderful sculpts. They are 1/32 scale or around 54mm.

    Figure painting is not my forte and these look so convincing.
