    I think that this is now finished. Just a little bit of filler to paint where his boot touches the base.
    Any comments/critique appreciated,
    Carl.

    Turned out really well Carl.
    I like that you kept the increased contrast as in your previous para.
    How did you do the stitching on the parachute belts? It looks excellent.

    Cheers,

    Carl,
    Really looks great! I'm a little partial to Paratroops.

    Nice one, mate. Love how you have varied the khaki tones. I'm always put off a bit from attempting this type of figure because of making a 'one-colour' figure look interesting.You've pulled it off nicely.

    I honestly think this is one of your best recent works Carl. I just got Bill Rentz`s fine book on U.S. Airborne Uniforms, etc, and your colors of the jump paints & jacket are dead on for the actual late war issues pictured in the book. Same for the jump boots basic colors.
