    Mitches Military Models 1st Bengal Lancers has come to the top of the G A pile. This should be fun. The face will bring some challenges, European Officer in India so not as dark as an Indian Officer but having a strong sun tan.

    Thanks Nap.
    Great info here. Will be making a start on the Kulla & Lungi this morning.
    So it could all be in the bin by lunch time :D.
    As a kid I remember my dad taking me to the India Room at Sandhurst, wish I had been older.
    Dont know if it is still there or open to the public.
    Thanks again.

    Hi All.
    Well I spent more time than I thought on the Kulla, Lungi & Paloo.
    At the moment I am happy with the outcome. But that may change.
    The Kulla, I used Vallejo Scarlet with a tad of flat Red. The gold work was Darkstar Victorian Gold.
    The Lungi & Paloo. I used Vallejo Nato Black. & Black gray for highlights. as the base with Darkstar Renaissance Gold for the gold work.
    Face next :LOL::LOL:
