    Bike is the 1/9 BMW R75 kit from Italeri plastic kit. All 3 figures are Jeff Shui and wooden base is supplied by Richard Wharton. Background card is from an old 1/6 figure kit.

    This build took around 2 months of solid work, with variable challenges that required variable different modelling methods. I need a good nameplate to finish but the modelling is done.

    Id like to thank my friend Andy Barter, who is a seasoned WW2 German re-enactor for his consultation on uniforms and weaponry.

    Thanks for your input and interest

    Can't get enough of this, it is stunning a true masterpiece of the art. I reckon if you grey scale those photos it would look like a contemporary picture.

    Like most I suppose I've admired Jeff Shiu's work for a long time, but have seen
    few actually painted......and certainly none to this standard. It's a truly magnificent
    piece of work......a masterclass and a privilege to look at !!
