    These are the paratroopers that will be behind the wall.
    Trying to find their lines or might have even been on a recon mission, they heard voices behind a wall and to their shock saw a platoon of SS Germans taking a rest!

    Noel, the heads look small with those bodies [jaqaw Verlinden?], try to find larger ones, some paras in Normandy used to have nets on their M1 ... like the poses and idea!

    Yes they are Verlinden figures and heads are Hornet. But I don't see them small! Shocked

    Anybody wants to put his comment about this......?

    Ivan, yes many had nets on the helmet and many had not. I would have liked them to be with a net but I don't have such heads.

    Hornet heads are pure 1/35, Verlinden figures work out to be 6'6'' on that scale, maybe better try to use Verlinden heads or warriors they are very similar in scale. Normally if I have no heads with good headgear I use commercial plastic ones hallow them and dress them up on resin bare heads, will get the fit better ...

    Hornet heads are excellent but works good on proper 1/35 figures, infact I had problems myself trying to find appropriate ones also to fit Miniarms figures which are a bit heavier compared to Dragon ... by the way Dragon have excellent US paras why not swopping to those, as still the Verlinden figures might look taller then the Germans [dragon ones]?
