    Nice one Rafael not sure if it's the pics but the flak jacket is a little bit light should be a darker green as I recall or maybe ours were just filthy :eek: and the SLR has a tad too much silver but these are minor nit picks in whats a lovely looking bit of kit

    Thanks Steve. Perhaps the green is lighter. I do not used any silver over the SLR but grey instead. Must be the flash! or bulb light.
    Thanks for your comments!

    Nice flesh tones and well handled ... also the helmet looks very good ! nicely worn with shinier areas.

    I think a Dullcote to the jacket and vest would benefit and also some shading to the camo jacket to bring the quality up to that of the face painting.

    Lovely face and like the visor. Camo jacket and vest are rather shiney. If I had rolled up with an SLR that looked that dirty I would have been wearing it night and day for months.

    Great work and the visor brings it into real life, could either make or break and yours is superrb.
    Painting is great, I would sugest a couple of dark green filters on the vest, starting dark green to more black but in less areas. It really is only a controlled wash and will give more depth to the areas you want. If you use oils you have time to play with them and helps enphasise areas but wont dry glossy.

    A good coat of satin or matt woud also combine everything, no reason not to mask head off and make body matt to show texture, you can emphasise the rifle over the top
    Great work and no critique at all, it is great, face superb

    Best wishes

    Not the visor though :))) or frosted visor :)
    As said nice work mate, face is great and would keep satin IMO with helmet
    Dullcote the rest for sure
    best wishes

    Nice work
    What gun is that ?
    Is it the almighty FALL form Belgian FN ? I had one when I made my time in 1971 so far away

    Miro it's a version of it known in the British Army as the SLR (Self Loading Rifle) the only real difference is the fact that it had the facility to fire fully automatic removed ( although with a trusty bit of wire you could mod it so as it would)

    the good old SLR.... Cracking weapon...remember being in the butts pasting up targets and watching the rounds strike the sand banks behind and thinking Jeeeeeeeezus wouldnt want to be on the wrong end of that!!!!!!!
