    Hello guys,do you remember this is a old figure sculpt in the 1986? Is the first figure that I seen in a model store in Padova city in the 1989. (I start to paint the doldiers in the end of 1994). I try to search this figure for many years and now I have (thanks to my friend Ugo pozzati) and now I finished to paint. I have some problem with the metal (just like at motocross field) but I'm so very happy. I hope you like.... ciao from Luca

    Nice work on the painting. Is that dude's melon freakishly large or is it just the pictures? Outstanding work though.

    Hi Elvis,
    Beautiful painting a figure whose head is too large compared with the body.
    Very good job Lucas.

    well 1986 was when I came into existence, so it was way back. I guess we can be forgiving on the big head in light of that...

    Pat and Ollie Byrd would laugh if they knew his Apache was still causing controversy. I was visiting Pat & Ollie in California right as this was in the casting drum and he showed me the photo he worked from of Victorio. Victorio had an unusual large head in proportion to his body so the sculpted master he cast from also showed this. After its release it did raise some questions then.....as it does now. He gave me a copy of this figure which I have painted in my showcase.
