American Sniper: Completed display figure.




Hello!

This is my tribute to Chris Kyle the US Navy SEAL whose story was portrayed in the movie American Sniper. During his service he saved the lives of hundreds of American troops and became the most deadly sniper in US Military history. After reading his life story and seeing the film I was inspired by this man's strength of character and dedication to duty.

I am not known for figure painting but I could not resist this excellent 120mm sculpt! I have displayed the figure on a plinth with the US NAVY SEAL TRIDENT and a military issue flag of Texas, the great state where Chris Kyle was born. 

I enjoyed this subject immensely and it has certainly wetted my appetite to paint more figures in the future. 

Thanks for looking and Happy Modelling!

Darren.
