Its somewere in france 1944 on a very cold and snowy day. A german sniper crouches on the second floor of a bombed out building, looking through a pair of binoculars, watching his prey come closer into his deadly range. He waits with patience with his trusty rifle close at hand ready to take his first shot as soon as the first victim comes into range.


The figure is from a Dragon sniper kit and the building is going to be scratch built with balsa and some foam for the walls.
The figure is done but I havent started the building. Time to get started....

Matrix???
Is it kit 6093? If so - which figure are you going to use? 1 or 3? I've gone the same route and am using figure 1.
Same concept - My name is Cold Stare.
I think it'll be fun to see how ours come out, having used the same kit.

Cheers

figure 1, is the one in winter camo that's crouching and looking through his binoculars.
i built the figure during the WE and it builds very nicely, with very little difficulty.
You can even place the arms and the binoculars, paint it that way and then later glue the head that you've painted separately.
Also, if you have problems painting faces and most of all eyes, a figure that's looking through binoculars is a good way to hide all that.
