    Just finished this guy ,Prob pose him with a Miniart Dingo . These Alpine figures are amazing quality and they have some beautiful subjects, but I wish they would release some WW2 Japanese figures ,there just isn't any high quality ones ,just plastic .Dont really understand the lack of interest in the subject .Anyway I think I am getting the hang of painting with Acrylics finally .

    Hi Neil, awesome painting. You did a great job on the insignia, especially at that small scale.
    Agree with you on two counts - the quality of Alpine figures is top notch, and there's a heap of subjects that are neglected in figures.
    Cheers

    Thanks Nick , Have to admit its harder to paint the small details as I am getting older, and the bloody eyesight is not like it used to be !

    Nicely done Neil. I'd be pleased with the result you got from acrylics... no problem there at all.
