    Hello folks,
    Just posting some pictures of this bust that I painted. It is from United Empire Miniatures and is approx 1/6th scale. Although there are some resemblences to Tom Hanks in Saving Private Ryan, I didn't paint him to be. The changes I made to him are that I replaced the helmet buckles with scratchbuilt metal ones and did the rough texture on the helmet. This was done by stippling thick oil paint onto it with a rough brush and letting it dry for about two weeks.
    The whole kit is painted in oils with hand painted insignia. The Ranger lettering were painted in oils, leaving it thick to represent stitched lettering.
    Hope you enjoy the pics,
    Ben

    Another cracker Ben. Lovely flesh tones and very realistic painting of the unit markings on the helmet and the cloth badge.
