    Howdy all! I just finished, save for some touch ups, Andrea's 90mm German Sniper. This was a fun project and the first time I used snow and made a broken window. Well, as a kid I broke one with a baseball, and another with my BB gun, and ...

    Let me know if you spot something that needs fix'n.

    Really nice job. The whites are terrific, as is the integration of figure and setting.

    Neat! Your whites are particularly excellent! Very 'believable' white shading and staining on the uniform. The scene-setting is also excellent!

    All the best,

    Thanks Dan, I appreciate your comments! I must admit that I took a deep breath just before I smeared mud on that white cammo! This Andrea offering is a cool shake and bake vignette. I only added a few busted bricks on the outer edge of the base perimeter and the broken glass. Thanks again!

    Very cool, Joe! I've only recently found out how difficult whites are to paint, so I can see what a top job you've done.
    Great weathering too, love how you've muddied him up.

    Howdy John! Yup, I like the Andrea White Set, it sure came in handy. My next project is primarily white, but I'm gonna try something different. Got to learn how to use other colors and tones. I've been looking over Bailey's painting white post. Thanks for looking over this sniper!

    Glad you like the way it turned out Nick. Believe me, as I approached that white uniform with that old brush loaded with 'mud', it was with a bit of trepidation! In the end I like the way it turned out. I reckon after you paint up some more whites it will become old hat! Thanks again Nick!
