    Hi Guys

    The first figure to get me back into it and here it is, I have to say its not as good as I would have liked it to be, but I will get back to it soon, the figure itself is not that good either the casting actually is the worst one I have had from JMD by far, but there is a lot going on in the way of detail with this figure, so from that point of view I can say that the sculptor is putting too much in for the casting process to handle which is not a bad thing. Its a good kit apart from the odd standing position. I have a couple of things I want to touch up, but whats your opinion

    Excellent painting Dave. I have noticed the difference in casting as well and have a review ready to post showing the casting.

    I thought as much as your review of the pilot bust showed a casting mark, that was definately not there on my version as the mould was opened from the back and not the side, maybe they needed to make sure of keeping that little strap intact on the finished piece.......

    Nice work my friend. I have a copy of it and the casting is absolutely flawless. All my JMD copies are brilliant to be honest . I guess i am with the lucky ones !

    Hi Dave,

    I agree about the stance. It does look unnatural and posey, but despite the stance and the casting, your painting is flawless.

    I have this kit too. The casting is realy flawless as Costas said, but in my kit there was a luck of the second knife. Any way, Dave I like the colours you have choosen and the overall resault. My oppinion is that, because of its standing position you have to use a scenic (mostly an arabic one) to add more drama in your presentation.

    Hey Dave,

    I like the painting on this figure ut the position that the scultper fut him in is unatural and kinda ruins it

    Hi Guys

    Thanks for the comments, please dont get me wrong, it is a lovely figure, I think I just got a bad one, when I mean bad, its no way as bad as you may think, its just I am used to the quality of their other pieces....

    Hey Dave,
    I have some JMD figures on my shelff and they are absolutely great casted.
    So i understand your disapointment about the somewhat minor casting.
    But your painting is outstanding.
