    Hi chaps....this is a little scene I did with a beautiful Hornet figure I've had hanging around for a few years. Turned both heads a bit to suit the scene. The guy on the donkey is from Master Box..with a few added accessories he has picked up during his travels. Both are 54mm. Cat litter groundwork.

    Sorry...should have said...everything is in acrylic except the raw umber oil wash I gave the groundwork before dry brushing again with acrylic.
    Thanks all for the comments. I will of course try and put this to a background....can't resist..!!

    A big weiner once again. . . .

    Aw Steve:

    You are indeed a "Pepper" mate. This is just a lovely little piece of story
    telling. Like Carl said, the painting of the burro, . . . 'er . . . mule? is just
    right on the money, and for me, gulp, . . . animules are so difficult
    to paint. Your attention to detail is just superb! And I love the gas can
    and the extra pair of shoes that sit behind the Arab. You sir,
    are a good story teller.

    Really impressive. . . thru out, the entire presentation. To me it looks like
    you think like an artist first, and a model builder, afterwards. . .

    Prost!
