Chris, very well done, you took that basic Dumas kit, or as some say Dum as kit, and turned her into a great representation of a Soviet cold war killer.
The ballast system employed is something that even old salts like Merriman has praised and your camera set up is simply ingenuous. Thanks for sharing that - have learnt lots. Definitely something in the water in SA,
-collectively a very talented bunch, shame you're 1,000 klicks away. I love ingenuity Chris et.al - its why I am in the hobby.

hope to see you in ACT

Thanks John for the encouragement. I don't know about the water here, (I won't drink it unless it is boiled first and sweeteners and coloring added.) I am a Sydney boy borne and raised in Redfern. :gunsb:
