    I found this old Kirin kit of a WW1 Tommy last week while cleaning up the model bunker so I had to paint it! Just a bit more work on the shading and highlights and this one is finished. As always, painted with acrylics. Based on the iconic photograph.

    You have inspired me to pull out the figure I have (54mm?) as I am on a bit of a WWI jag right now. Never realized this figure was based on a photo, cool!

    I'm very impressed Dave.

    I also have this figure as part of my 'grey army' of part done models. Your paint job and weathering is inspiring.

    Very nice job and the mud on his jacket makes a great brown on brown contrast. Very well observed and executed.

    Nicely done!

    I believe this was a Jon Smith sculpt for Kirin. Please feel free to correct me if you know better.

    All the best,

    Dan,
    It just does not look like one of his face sculpts... I love his stuff and whoever created this one did a great job! And thank you very much!
