    I started this project today, La Fortezza 54mm white metal figure, the usual removing of mold seams and filling the pitting marks was the first things to do, few parts need to be replaced like the sling for the canteen and sling swivels for the rifle, otherwise everything seems to be ok. I will make a groundwork base for this. IMG_20201218_154735.jpg

    Hi there

    Nice update

    Do you paint straight onto metal or will you still prime the main figure like head ?

    Look forward to seeing the face in this one

    Happy bench time

    Stay safe

    Hi Nap

    I do prime all the metal parts, usually I use primers from spray can, but this time Mr Hobby base white through airbrush, either way they stink :)
