Great review on a great product. I believe all products of Specops released till now are really perfect.
Thanks for the review

As far as I'm concerned, those are among the best resin figures I've seen so far... and I have seen figures from almost all manufacturers on the market today.

We'll have some more exciting modern figure news from SpecOps team soon.

I guess if you were willing to model some water you could do a vignette of this guy wading through a marsh or across a river.

David, good to hear from you mate!

From my correspondence with Andy, the original idea behind this bust was exactly like you explained... clear resin water as a "base" and a SEAL marching trough a river. However, Andy eventually decided to go with the usual bust style.

Hi David,
Funny that you said that, I am going to do something like that with the figure on my Logo.
It will be a Bust too, will cast the water out of a clear casting resin and tint it for the base. I started on the Drager rebreather system..
Another one on my list of thing's to do....

Cheers,

Andy

Hi Mario, good to see you in a staff seat! Haven't had much time for modelling in the last year, but I still visit.

Sounds good, Andy. Hope to see some pix soon.
