    Beautifully natural looking, Tony. Lovely blending on the flesh especially.
    And I must admit, the base caught my eye too!

    Hi Guy and Michael,

    Thanks for your comments gents.

    The base is a solid core of white granite from a drill core sample, covered in a clear gloss acrylic overcoat.

    Hi Samwell, John, David, Ian, Marc, Mark, Ray, Roger and Frank,

    Thanks for your comments guys.

    Sam, my next new one is likely to be another Naked Army 1/6th scale figure of a Royal Australian Air Force Spitfire pilot in New Guinea, 1943.

    I have a couple of other figures at various stages of completion which I hope to finish in the next couple of months.

    Cheers
