    I'm starting this excellent figure from Evolution miniatures in 1/35 scale-commander of GRU Spetsnaz in Afghanistan (EM-35101). Very nice figure, flawless cast, no seamlines and bubbles, simple breakdown of the parts. Now I'm gathering information about this type of uniform and will proceed with the painting, stay tuned ;)

    Way to small for my eyes to cope with but that looks like a very crisp and sharp casting, I am sure you well enjoy painting him.

    Starting with the face and head painting, first time using Scale75 Flesh colors set and I really like them-they blend nicely and with good consistency :)

    A very nice result and a not so usual subject.I like that you have given him blond hair and mustache.It serves to give him a reasonably Slavic countenance.Well done.

    Painted the Adidas sneakers and the sleeping bag (I guess). I have to make the rifle and binoculars straps, and some touch-ups on the uniform
