    I've completely stepped out of my comfort zone with this little project, its been over 20yrs since I painted 1/35th figures, this is a figure I completed for an upcoming BMSS event where club members were challenged to do something different from the norm, luckily for me I got AFVs, I built many diorama's back in the mid 80s to early 90s so I was looking forward to the challenge.
    The figure is from the Alpine 1/35th range and very good they are as well,the amount of detail that goes into these figures is amazing,however this is a complete one off for me and I wont be undertaking anything like this again.
    The figure was base coated in GW acrylics and finished and weathered with oils, I'd be interested to hear peoples views on it :(,I posted it earlier in Brutal Honesty and I'm very happy with some of the final feedback I received in that forum,as I said earlier,although its not applicable to this site ive added some photo's of the final setting,all I have to add is some observation equipment.

    Thanks Brian (y)
