WIP Critique bust Pavlovski grenadier bust (part 1)

Discussion in 'vBench (Works in Progress)' started by Ben-nl, Feb 12, 2016.

    I present you in several steps the paintingwork on the bust Pavlovski grenadier, produced by http://www.bonapartesmilitarymodels.co.uk/russian-grenadier-battle-of-borodino-1812-245-p.asp
    It is a very and NICE big one.
    The 1st step is looking for good references. I have no books about Russian troops, so I had done my quest by www. Not easy, the sources are contradict each other sometimes. So you makes your own choices.
    The 2nd step is looking for a good wooden base. My choice was a personal one by http://www.ilbasetta.it/
    The 3rd step is to clean the bust and to glued together. No problems there. Some flesh or mouldingstripes but easy to remove with a knife.
    The 4th step it to paint the color. The references are poor/rare, but I hope I have done the right colours.
    The paintingwork is done with Humbrol enamels.
    Enjoy the added photos.
