A fantastic figure vignette of the U.S. Navy Seals "Operation Neptune's Spear", 2011 Seal Team Six from modelling friend Andrés Fonseca Wilder
Two helicopters piloted by Army aviators transported 23 SEALs, an interpreter, and a combat dog to carry out the raid. The mission was dubbed Operation Neptune Spear, a nod to the U.S. Navy SEAL insignia.
This one looks fantastic! I recognize the figure but I forget the name of the company that went out of business.
The desert digital camouflage pattern has got to be one of the best paint jobs I’ve seen on a modern 1/16 SEAL figure. The extra accessories, coin, floorplan, wrist map, and decals really make this vignette stand out.
I recall that Spades Models had a Kickstarter to fund a 1/16 sniper and the goal was not reached (honestly, the sniper didn’t look that good) so Spades Models decided to close shop…just like that…and was never heard from again. This SEAL figure is their only release and by far the best of their offerings.
Airborne Miniatures sells 1/16 SEAL figures. Legend Productions ceased making modern U.S. SOF figures due to a falling out with their overseas sculptor. There is a lot of hush-hush history behind the story of making modern SOF figures, unfortunately.
