    G'day Mark,

    Excellent weathering mate. The only problem I can see is the join of the right arm to the upper torso. It doesn't look like the gap has been filled properly yet.

    Could I suggest you also add some dark brown mud over the weathering on the boots and trousers to show wet mud, which will contrast nicely with the dry coloured mud underneath.

    Thats some amazing work!

    I did that same figure, and even w/ the few extras I added/improved It pales massively in comparison and the facial details are far superior to anything I can do.

    Very well done!

    Ken .... Many thanks. a book? it would be very slim :)

    Tony .... cheers :) yes i ended up slapping some putty in the arm and it looks alot nicer, also added another 2 layers of spattering and as you suggested some darker fresher colours over the rest. i'm stopping at this as i'm trying to get this just "right" :) thanks again for the input, it's appreciated.

    Jay .... no problem and thank you! it's been fun and quite demanding :)

    Gary .... many many thanks :D

    Saginaw79 .... thank you very much :eek:




    so......

    this is now ( as far as i'm concerned ) finished :)

    i've done the tweaks and i'm pretty happy with it overall. i learned a hell of a lot from this piece. the main one being that work on preperation paid back when i got down to the painting!

    i can see many things on this that i will try and improve on the next one!

    final pics and thanks to everone who has commented and extra thanks to donations of knowledge and etched ss arm eagles :)

    cheers everyone

    Hi Mark,

    Some people tend to dismiss these DML 1/16th kits as inferior because they're plastic, but you've shown that with patience, a few after-market accessories and a great paint job, they can be just as eye-catching as any resin or white metal figure. Well done mate. The weathering looks great.

    Hello, Mark.
    Wow!your work is cool and amazing.
    I have the experience by which I painted this figure, too.
    However it couldn't be painted better than you.
    I think your work is a perfect masterpiece.
    I congratulate completion.

    Excellent work Mark,congratulations.
    I think it would be better if you have painted an SS camo on helmet cover inspite of the Wehrmacht one (which is undoubtly very well painted).
