    Hi all,

    It's Been a while since I last posted. I've been taking a break after the Chicago Show. I just finished up this little gem sculpted by Derek Hansen back in the day.

    Painted in acrylics and printers inks.

    Please take a look and feel free to comment.

    Thanks

    Hi Carl,

    Thanks for taking a look. I'm finding out that the simple figures are becoming the most difficult to paint because the painting has to me much more subtle. There is not a lot of room for error.

    Thanks

    Hi Tony,

    Thanks for looking. I was lucky to find this one for $1.00 at a show a while back. And its a Poste Militaire. Elite has recasted these in recent years. Ive heard that its a hard to find kit.

    Nice to meet you in Chicago.

    Damn man, that was quick. Nicely done sir. You tackled those blues nicely.

    Hey Joe,
    Thanks for taking a look: The colors for the blue were Vallejo German Grey, Dark Prussion Blue and Reaper Heather Blue for the base. About 60% Heather Blue and 20% for the other two. It starts out dark. Highlights are Heather blue and basic skintone progressively higher. German grey and black for the lowlights.

    Thanks Ward. It was pretty quick. It pretty much painted itself. One of those kind of figures
