    • The way you have them posed looks good as they seem to be interacting, especially if you have it titled as you suggested. The figures look good and you nailed those green aviators! Since you say they're not quite done my guess is you'll be adding a few highlights/shadows to their uniforms, hands, and faces; though they actually look good for display as is. The only other idea, since you're setting it in a situation to be looked at; you don't have to go with grass if you don't like its look. If you put a couple of stanchions with a rope between them and add a small info sign you can make a museum floor. Or, you can make a short back wall to suggest it's in a hangar and put it on a concrete floor. In any case, unless you plan to compete with it, I wouldn't get too hung up on how "scale" the grass is or what surface you set it on.   Gil 
    • I still have some painting work to do.  Any comments/criticisms would be very welcomed. The color of the RAF pilot’s eyes need to be fixed and the USAAF pilot’s sunglasses didn’t turn out well I don’t think. No shading or highlighting yet. The color of the American pilot’s jacket is leather brown but it needs a glossy clear coat, correct?  Please have at it, especially colors if you see something. 
    • It has taken me a long time to assemble and paint these two 1/16 WWII pilots. They are not quite done. Also, I’m having trouble finding a good grass base for this scale without spending over $100. This is temporary. Any suggestions there would be quite welcome. I’d like to call it “Admiring a WWI Warbird” or something like that. Thoughts, criticisms are very much welcome and appreciated.  Thanks for looking, Stuart
