US Army 82nd Airborne – Desert Shield

120mm Figure by Jeff Thompson.


The figure is Verlinden’s 120mm 82nd Airborne Soldier (Desert Shield).

Jeff’s only modification was to the gas mask pouch which was shaped with Milliput to make it look thicker and fuller than the very skinny stock item.

Painting & Finishing

The model was painted with oils and enamels. Unit patch is from Verlinden’s U.S. Uniform Patches decal sheet. Other stenciling is made up from Archer Dry Transfers.
