    Hello guys.This is my version of Model cellar Productions.Canadian Billy Bishop.54mm resin kit.Hope you like him,had lots of fun painting him.The resin casting is just top rate and the sculpting is the same(y).I painted him in Vallejo acrylics.I have a couple of touch ups to still do on him and put on his base,apart from that he is all but complete.

    Regards, John:)

    The feel of a material of the coat is very wonderful.
    The fresh tone is also cool.
    I liked it very much.

    This paint job is perfect. Everything is spot on, except for the leather - that is beyond spot on.

    Nice painting of a very well sculpted and well cast figure ! Nice work on the leather coat and the boots/leggings.

    I have this model cellar figure too, it's really good value for money. Also got a paperback from Amazon ("Billy Bishop, Canadian hero") to read and know more about this personality.
    ... Another of Mike Good's excellent smokin' figures ;)

    John,

    WOW! V E R Y nicely done!! ...as someone else said: I can smell the leather =).

    And the face looks great too - love the flesh tones.

    You have done a fantastic job. It's always satisfying for me to see our figures built and painted. It gives me a "warm fuzzy" to know that someone is enjoying our figs. ...and especially half way around the globe!

    regards,

    Nice work John, especially like the attention to detail & great to see you painting again. I'm still struggling to get back in the frame unfortunately.

    Hope to be able to see this little fellow later in the year ;-)
