    Great start, Rafa! The trousers, fatigue jacket and backpack are excellent, slightly bleached and faded. Nice one!

    All the best,

    Not my piece of cake Rafa,

    But you are doing a tremendous paintjob.
    Like the base you working on.

    Rafael,

    Super job on the figure- one of my favourites too !

    I particularly like the groundwork treatment and I'm intrigued by the signpost and sign - is this all scratchbuilt, or is the sign a commercial offering ? If scratchbuilt, could you please share your technique; if commercial, from whom is it available ?

    Cheers,

    Brian

    Dan, Marc, Brian, thanks alot for your kind comments.

    I found the sign searching in Internet but the resolution was not good. I resize the sign to match the scale of the figure and I decided to use it as base and then I painted over it in a correct scale size and resolution.

    I painted lights and shadows in each letter and also paint some damages using brown and grey colors. The base color used in the sign was a mix of violet and prussian blue. I added a final wash of Andrea English Khaki in order to dirt the final piece.

    About the signpost I made it using pieces of natural wood ("ice cream pieces")

    Hope you like it
