    Hi Al,

    Even from a distance this is clearly a very well painted figure. For a fourth figure, this is truly outstanding.

    It would be great if you could post some close up pictures, and as a suggestion try not to use so much light when taking the photos as it tends to wash the colours out.

    You're right Tony, it is easy to see it is a well painted figure. Congratulations Al.

    Thank you guys. I do have to practice taking better pictures. They either come washed out or out of focus.

    I appreciate your comments and will try and post better shots. Better yet I'll borrow my son's camera or have him take the pics.

    Wonderful work indeed! I wish I had been producing work like this by my fourth figure. The grey and red tones are especially good. Keep up the good work.

    Thanks everyone,

    Danilo's book was an inspiration to get this figure, but thanks to Johan here, I was able to get some of the colors and details right. Like the tuff was green and not red and white as Danilo shows it. Also, from some of the research pictures from Johan and others I was abel to find, the trousers were gray and not blue as Danilos were.
