    Hi all!

    In an attempt to improve my detail work and finish a few of the bits sitting around on my bench I have done a bit on these two tiny fellows!

    Sculpted by Mike Good the detail is quite astounding!

    This is them next to a 1/16th DML figure

    And in their component parts....

    Black! black! black! black!

    Even in this tiny scale black is a pain in the Ar*& to do !!!

    Only the left arm of the leather jacket has had any real work done on it, the rest is just roughed in ....

    Mark, you can do the leather coat fellow's trousers in camo! I intended that it be Italian camo pattern, but any SS pattern would be equally correct.

    And, oh yeah, black!

    Ken ... Cheers mate :)


    Eyes and cap piping!...

    The piping is part of the sculpt so relatively easy lol! the eyes are my best shot at it in this scale :( I might fiddle with them some more but frankly I would probably just mess em up .... :)

    Thats very impressive Mark for 1/48, the black looks very good and to have even attempted eyes that small would be more than I could do.
