    This is Tamiya's 1/16 Luftwaffe pilot, a kit I return to more frequently than any other - a good practice piece and always fun to do. This is the first time I've used one of the kit heads, this one being better than the portrait head of Adolf Galland.

    Morning Peter

    Lovely work again and nice to see the kit head making an appearance.

    Nice rendition of Galland too.

    I have this one and a bust somewhere in the attic packed away, perhaps one day?

    Looks like there are still plenty of figures for you to get stuck into still.

    I guess they give better value for money time wise?

    Boots and Wilko still seem to have the old fashioned Dettol listed?

    Have a good day and joy your next victim.

    Hi Peter

    This is a classic from Tamika ...one I painted for buts ....you have done a cracking job on this , like the whole overall look of him and agree ref using the head ..unusual for you ...lol

    SWMBO dragged me shoping and I noticed they had Dettol available at a large Tesco

    Thanks for sharing

    Warren - Many thanks.

    Carl - Thank you.

    Steve - Yes, the kit head, whatever next? Always enjoyed doing this one, very simple, but a well-sculpted figure. The Dettol hunt continues - it seems that the local shops do normally stock it, but for some reason can't get hold of it at the moment - Kent is at the limit of the supply chains. A couple of busts next while the hunt continues. Hope you get some bench time soon.

    Nap - I thought I'd give the kit heads a go figuring they couldn't be that bad - hmm. We're going to Morrisons today, so fingers crossed they're re-stocked on the brown stuff. Glad you like this one.
    Mike - The Kiwi and Nap like this.
