    I managed to pick up this Atelier 75mm figure of General Jean-Andoche Junot at the Tank Museum Model Show yesterday at a very reasonable price.
    He is made in white metal so quite a heavy figure, I have given him a bit of a cleanup but he didn't need that much, and given him a good soapy was so tomorrow I shall get the primer out and given him a few light blasts.

    I'm really looking forward to painting this rather colourful figure.

    Thanks Jeff, I am a volunteer modeller at the museum so our group had a good display to show the visitors during the 2 day show, I only attended on the Saturday and it was a super day, lots of visitors and some lovely models on the club stands that attended.

    The 2 halves of his Pelisse which will be interesting fixing in place once the main figure has been painted.
