    My latest project is a Platatac/Naked Army 1/6 scale cold cast bronze
    I've completed the face in W&N oils , all other in acrylics helmet cover just needs a little more tweeking on the multi cam , i've laid down the base coat for the chest rig and will begin the multi cam shortly
    It's a beautifully sculpted and cast figure, i've cut both arms at the sleeve to give me better access to the legs , have drilled into the arms at the sleeves and have resculpted the arms to fit back into sleeves.
    Started to build up texture on the shoes
    All comments and criticisms welcome
    Cheers

    I've decided to change the cam on the chest rig i'll be using an older style washed out sun faded cam instead of the multi cam to allow the detail on the rig to be seen and so the it won't all blend together when the multi cam is painted onto the uniform

    It's really starting to come on now Al. Muting the multicam on the chest rig was a good call. Can't wait to see how you paint the shirt and then tie all the colours together.

    A little progress , blocking in the main darker colours on the shirt, i have resculpted the shoulders of the shirt by taking away the mesh on the original and turning the shirt into a slightly older style shirt.

    Excellent work Al. There are no short cuts with this guy. The camo pattern needs to be precise and clear. Take your time mate, its worth the extra effort to get it right.
