    Hello again :)

    having cleared my workbench a couple of days ago i have preped a few new items.....

    finally i'm doing an Alpine 1/35th figure :)

    i swopped the kit head as soon as i saw this one from Hornets "Mature" set. Please someone shout out if it looks stupid ;)

    had some difficulty painting the eyes but mostly happy with the head now and i like the weight in the face.

    finished with the jibber-jabber i post a pic.....

    This head works very well with this figure,after all not all soldiers are young men.

    Cheers David

    Thanks David, yeah this head and body seemed right :)

    Thanks Pedro, the face could be better but i get bored very easily ;)




    Update..........

    the uniform is almost finished, needs another hour or so to really tie it together, fantastic to paint as every crease is there!

    Hello, Mark.
    Your coloring is wonderful.
    I think quite small figure, but your painting is amazing.

    Mitsutaka thank you! he is 51mm high so very small :)

    Update......... i'm not messing around with the uniform any more, it looks ok in real life :)

    coat next... urgh, i assume its lined? i know the collar has the Feldgrau facings, but the lining? i'm going with feldgrau for that i think and vary the tone with the highlight colour
