    Hi all,

    I've just started painting this new Alpine Miniatures figure of an early WWII Russian tankcommander. The figure is 1/35th scale and moulded in resin. As always everything is painted in acrylics. The face is ready (except for the eyes which need some retouching) and I've started to paint the leather tank helmet.

    All comment are appreciated.

    Greetz,

    Gino.

    Hi everyone,

    this is another figure I'm working on at the moment. It's true 1/35th scale, in resin by Alpine Miniatures. All painting is done in acryllics. The upper body just needs some details painted and then I can move to the trouseres and boots.

    All comments are very welcome.

    Greetz,

    Gino.

    Gino I like the colour of the gymnastiorka shirt.

    Hi all,

    I have worked a bit on this figure that has to be ready for Euro. I need to do his boots and some weathering. He will be placed next to a part of a T-26, which I'm building now. The fear of having to use a airbrush comes sneaking in again!!! The figure is one of the excellent Alpine miniature figures.
    The pictures were taken with my new camera (Nikon Coolpix 5400) and I would like to thank Jaume Ortiz for all the technical advise he has givin me allready.

    Let the comment, remarks, etc... roll in.

    Greetz,

    Gino
