    Hello, everyone.:)
    I have completed my lastest model.
    (Cabo de Gastadores de infanteria, 1876,Latorre Models,54mm).
    Unfortunately, I don't know about this soldier's historical background well.:confused:
    Basic painting is acrylic and oil paints are used for painting of completion.
    All comments welcome.:eek:

    Thank you very much, Pedro.

    Hello, Pedro.
    Thank you very much for your kind comment.:)
    It's the front that this figure has been completed actually fairly.
    After that I was painting almost no figure.:confused:
    I'm happy because you like it.:eek:

    Thank you very much, Andrea.

    Hi! Andrea.
    Thank you very much for your kind comment.:)
    This figure put on a hat deeply, so painting of an eye was difficult.:confused:
    Even 54mm figure wants maker to make the hat different parts.
    Thank you for liking it.:eek:

    Hi Mitsutaka,

    Well done on another great figure. I've noticed that most of your figures are painted with blonde (yellow) hair, and I was hoping you could do something different in future.

    Thank you very much, Tony.

    Hello, Tony.
    Thank you very much for your kind comment.:)
    You are right.:eek:
    It was stereotyped in case of me about hair.
    I'd like to observe more real things about the color of the hair.:rolleyes:
    Thank you very much for your valuable impressions.:eek:

    Hello, Guy.
    Thank you very much for your kind comment.:)
    The pace of my coat is being downed these days.:confused:
    I think the number of contribution probably becomes small.
    However I'd like to make the work everyone can like more.:eek:

    Grass cut an artificial lawn made from vinyl off.
    They were sold as grass in the water tank at a corner of a tropical fish in a pet shop.
    Even if preimer isn't blown, every kind of paint can be painted.;)
    Thank you very much for your question.:eek:

    Nice painting Mitsutaka would agree with Tony about the hair, maybe darker hair would look better.

    Thank you very much, David.

    Hello, David.
    Thank you very much for your kind comment.:)
    I think it's better to paint hair with the dark color as you say.
    I was just painting the bright color just as it is so far.
    Thank you very much for your valuable advice.:eek:

    Thank you very much, ken.

    Hello, Ken.
    Thank you very much for your kind comment.:)
    I'm happy because you like it.
    I like Latorre Models.
    However release of a new product seems slow these days, and I'm worried.
    It's only painting that I can do.
    So I think I should be able to do a sculpting, too.:eek:

    Thank you very much, Marc.

    Hello, Marc.
    Thank you very much for your kind comment.:)
    I painted a figure quite quietly this time.
    I was painting with the quite flashy color to the front, but a taste seems to change in myeself.
    Thank you for liking it.:eek:

    Hi Mitsutaka-san

    Nice painting, very neat
    Looks great like any Latorre figures. Saw this in last year World Expo, the face looks different did you change the head?

    Thank you very much, Allan.

    Hello, Allan.
    Thank you very much for your kind comment.:)
    I'm happy because You like it.:eek:
    I don't exchange a head and use something of a kit.
    A facial expression is different more fairly than a completion picture as you say.
    I think it's probably the difference in the manners of my facial coat.:confused:
    I made an effort, too, it wasn't possible to build it into the expression like packaging.:eek:

    Hi Hikaru. This miniature was part of a largest project, intended as a tribute to Josep Cusachs i Cusachs, a spanish military painter from XIX century.
    Here is a pic of the miniature with the painting that inspired it:

    http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_XjhAcKDF1.../fJnhgY8tumI/s1600-h/figuralatorrecusachs.jpg

    This one is the only one that were comercially released. The other ones are one of a kind miniatures by some of the most talented miniature artists in Spain. I leave you a link of the tribute page so you can see then all. Just clic on every artist name at the bottom of the page to see his contribution:

    http://espaciocusachs.blogspot.com/2009_04_01_archive.html

    If you are interested in this theme, there is a book that compiles all this work. It is on sale on the webpage of El Baluard, the association that hosted the last World Expo in Girona. Problem is that the webpage is temporarily closed for technical reasons. I hope they are going to fix it, in time for the Soldat de Plom show in october.
    Regards
    FeR
