Rescued US Marines

I found these fellows in the scratched and dented box at a recent toy soldier show. They are by Martin Ritchie .

New sets by Martin Richie.... 95.00 USA

I repainted my survivors in matte finish with more detail and a few corrections.

 The dress enlisted man's frock coat should have a double row of buttons.

I missed that the officer should also have fringed epaulets. The officer was sculpted with "Russian Knot" epaulets which were not full dress. Maybe I'll fix that

These little guys that I got for $5.00 USD each look good around the ocean or in front of a government building. Maybe I'll find their mates at the next show in the scratched and dented box.
