    Here is my latest commission piece I call "Blondie" from the movie "The Good, The Bad and The Ugly, Clint of course being "The Good" portion of that title. He is an Art Girona 75MM piece and he is cast in white metal. Very nice kit but I'm not to used to painting white metal kits anymore. He is painted in Vallejo Acrylics as always with Citadel paints for the metalics. This was far out of my realm but I thoroughly enjoyed making the project come to life. I decided to try some different techniques to achieve a believable look to his denim trousers as I wanted that worn blue jean look and I was pretty happy with the outcome.

    What's the "Blondie" connection about Dan?

    Hi Mike. That's what Eli Wallach ("The Ugly") called Clint Eastwood's character throughout the movie.

    I know Sam isn't it strange. No camo, no automatic weapons??? Very strange for me.

    LOL Dave. It's nice to get a break from WWII stuff every now and again. I also think it helps to broaden your skills as well in different techniques and medias. I feel like I'm more rounded when I go outside of my realm and I don't mean physically as god knows I'm round enough:cool:.
