    Hello all!
    This is a female mechanic figure from Japanese model maker Brick Works and was sculpted by Mr.Hayashi.
    The scale is 1/20(90mm). I used oil paint as usual.
    This figure is from SciFi story called “Maschinen Krieger” or “SF3D original”. The story was serialized in 1980’s in “Hobby Japan” magazine.

    I don’t know if I can post non-historical figure like this, but the sculpture of this figure is so beautiful that I’d like to show you my work.

    I hope you like her.
    Critiques and comments are welcome!

    This is possibly the best painted version of this kit I have seen. Congrats!

    This very kit motivated my first overseas order from Japan. But this won't work now as its primary distributor has been put off by recast activities by certain Chinese persons and my Chinese name as a payee will mean refusal to sell. Well it was sweet while it lasted.

    Darn curious to see you paint the rest of the series or, even better, complement this lady with one of them SF3D walkers :)

    Thank you, Kazufumi, Mitsutaka:)

    She was beautifully sculpted, so I tried to paint beautiful blue eyes, not too strong contrast skin tone.

    Thank you, Ngai Hang:).

    I'm sorry to to hear the serious problem. The recast activities sucks.

    But I'm glad there's non-Japanese SF3D fan.

    Thank you, Mike.

    This series is very popular in Japan. It attracted many non-figure modelers. Look them up please.

    Thank you, Ken!
    It's not usual for me to paint a woman figure. So I painted very carefully, especially her eyes. I'm glad you like it.

    Thank you for the compliment, Marc!

    I painted blonde hair as follows:
    At first, I paint basic coat with middle stone+white (GSI Creos Mr.color)
    2nd, I used oil paint "DUO" from japanese maker Holbein.
    I used cream, yellow, raw umber for basic tone. I added white for highlight and added more raw umber for shade.
    The color name of DUO seems a little bit different from other oil paint so I don't know if my recipe works as reference for usual oil paint users.
