British tanker WWII

    Hi all,

    Included I post some pictures of the latest figure I have painted.

    Again, it's an Alpine figure with an Hornet head in 1/35th scale (is it obvious I'm a HUGE fan of Alpine figures?). The metal box is by Verlinden Productions, the magazine and pack of Camel cigarettes is by Dioart and the cup of tea (what else for an Englishman?) is by Armand Bayardi.

    Again I painted everything with acrylics, some inks and a bunch of pigments. The effest I was after with this figure, is that he got dirty from two source : first some dust and secondly all kind of filth from working on, in and around his vehicle. If I achieved the wanted result I leave up to you guys. The groundwork is a mix of Magic Sculp and some more pigments. The grass is by Joefix and all is mounted on an S&T base ( I just wish these were still available here in Europe, or even better in Belgium).

    I'm curious to hear what you guys think of it? Thanks for looking.

    Cheers,

    Gino

    Gino,
    Just what I expect a dirty tanker to look like after a run in with the enemy.
    Great job and in 1/35Th.

    A great figure, Gino!

    I like the black sooty spots on his suit, and the face is very good!
    He looks like a worn combatant, and the weathering tops him of!

    Congrats! :)

    gino,
    Very good paintwork. But i don't like that coolminer face. I know this is what you are looking for with the figure and you have reached your goal. But i (personally) would see less dirt on the face.
