    Hello, everyone.:)
    I have begun to paint my lastest model.
    (BRITISH PARA SNIPER, VERLINDEN 120mm)

    I think painting becomes more slowly paced up to now.

    I'd like to paint pleasantly.;)

    (It's expected to glue a gun together after painting ends.)

    All comments welcome.;)

    Great work on the terrain. I feel this figure has a great presence and dignity.
    Sometime figure don't need a lot of animation or extreme pose to come
    across with just the right mood. Look forward to more WIP on this one.

    Thank you very much, everyone.

    Hello! Pedro.:)
    Well.. this is an old kit of a Verlinden.
    But I think there is also much something wonderful in the old product.
    I like it about a pose, too.;)

    Hello! Marc.:)
    Thank you very much for your kind comment.
    I set a ground work as a grassland this time.
    Thank you for liking it.;)

    Hi! Mark.:)

    Hello! Carl.:)
    Thank you very much for your kind comment.
    Thank you for liking it.
    This figure has 2 heads.
    I chose a head of a beret.;)

    Hi! Christian.:)
    Thank you very much for your kind comment.
    The figure I painted for the first time was a product of a Verlinden.
    Even Japan is low price, so it's easy to get.
    Thank you for liking it.;)

    Hello! Rick.:)
    Thank you very much for your kind comment and evaluation.
    I like a mood of this figure, too.;)
    Thank you for liking it.
    It slows down a little, but I think I can contribute progress while being close.:)

    Hello! Ken.:)
    Thank you very much for your kind comment.
    I get at a corner of a railroad model about the material of the ground work.;)
    There are various kinds of wood and grass.
    Thank you for liking it.;)

    Hi! Tony.:)
    Thank you very much for your kind comment.
    I'm not good at camouflage painting.:(
    So it may be a little failed.:confused:
    Well.. I'll do something.
    I'd like to build it into the work which can respond to your expectation.;)

    Hi Mitsutaka,

    Coming along just fine.

    I've seen this Verlinden figure before from the same angle (the front)...and something looks a bit funny about the proportions of the arm's lengths. Both the upper and fore arms look a bit too long, and seem to be sculpted around the equipment. Could you post a side view to see how it looks from there? It's probably just the camera angle.

    Always enjoy your work Mitsutaka!

    Cheers,
    Jon.

    Thank you very much, Jon.

    Hello, Jon.:)
    Thank you very much for your kind comment.
    I also added a side view.;)
    Since an arm is concerned with looking long, I think the effect of the angle of the camera.:confused:
    I think a foot of this figure is short by my negative idea.
    While being close, I think a painted figure can be contributed.;)

    Basic painting finished.

    Hello, everyone.:)
    I have finished basic painting.
    Painting is blown painting by a hand piece.
    3 colors of camouflage isn't being also painted by a brush.:(
    I judged that even a hand piece was no problem by this case.:confused:
    Greene and Brown use VALLEJO-COLOR.
    After camouflage painting had ended, I washed clothes with black of enamel.
    I blew mat clear at the end to arrange gloss.;)

    Hi Mitsutaka,

    Several times I've noticed that you refer to a "hand blown" technique for painting. I presume this is similar to air brushing but substituting your own lung power for a cannister of compressed gas or an air compressor?

    Perhaps you could post a picture of the tool you use you hand blowing. I'd be very curious to see it and learn how you use it.

    Whatever the technique, you sure produce impressive results.

    If I may suggest, the colour of the para beret should be a deep cherry colour.

    Keep up the good work mate.

    Thank you very much, Tony.

    Hi! Tony.:)
    Thank you very much for your kind comment and question.;)
    I also use a hand piece of the caliber for 0.3mm.
    A compressor is also used.
    A AFV modeler is something general to use.
    This isn't so expensive.
    The air pressure can't be adjusted.
    When blowing the color from the black top, I turn a nozzle to the bottom from the top and spray.:confused:
    The part where paint is adherent and isn't exposed to the light in the part exposed to the light by doing it this way is while being black.:)
    I reproduce a gradation of clothes by this way.
    I think neither highlights nor a shade stick to its color when I apply the color of the camouflage by a brush.
    When blowing by a hand piece, a gradation is also given to the camouflage color.
    However for example I think it isn't possible to blow and reproduce the sprinter camouflage pattern of the German military.:(
    I paint such in case of by a brush, too.;)

    Thank you very much for comment of a beret.
    I'd like to correct immediately.(y)

    Thank you for liking it, my friend.:)

    Hello Mitsutaka,

    I like the way you paint your figures, they always seem to come alive.
    There is only one small thing I want to mention.
    You have used 3 colours for the camo-pattern, if you look carefully to the picture of a first pattern denison smock you will count 5 colours.
    I would suggest to add the darkest colour that occurs at the crosspoints of the green and brown (almost black green)

    Happy painting,

    Willem
