    Hi Folks,

    This is a Young Miniatures 1/10 scale bust.

    The rear grill for the bazooka came as a near-solid casting (rather unusual for YM) which took me nearly a fortnight of careful filing and sanding to get it looking approximately right. It took that long because every time I got the itch to speed things up, I put it away for the morrow.
    I suppose I could have asked for a replacement, but once I got going, it became a goal to achieve.
    The face is painted in oils over enamels and the helmet is mainly enamels.
    The uniform and equipment are generally acrylics, while the bazooka is a mixture of enamels and acrylics.
    Along the way, most elements received a judicious wash of Sepia oil.

    Hope you like it.

    Cheers,
    Andrew
