Maybe my favourite character. Sid Ridly aka Captain Midlands (based on acter Bill Nighy) is Britain's directed answer to Captain America. Created during WW2 as a part of the British super soldier project Sid differs from Rodgers in that he was never frozen and instead aged normally. Despite being in his 80's Ridley is still in his prime and still has the body of a hero, his abilities having not dimished at all.

Based on a WW2 Captain America figure the head was resculpted to included the helmet and crowl all made from green stuff. The Flak Vest he wears is pretty much scratch built from bits of fodder and the shield was resculpted to included the lion emblem. With a base coat of black the colours were dry brushed on for the desert fatigues and vest and then simply highlighted up.
