    Hello,

    I present you my next painted figure and for now my last one for this year 2016.
    It is the "famous" 75 mm French Dromedary Regiment in Egypt, produced by RPModels.
    It is a piece with a lot of details to paint.
    I have a suggestion for all the 299 other collectors who want to paint it, don't place the dromedary on one feet. It is to weak!

    I hope you like it.

    I wish you a Merry Christmas and a healty and good new year.

    Ben

    Hi Ben

    Nice work good to see it painted up , I thought there was a metal pin in the leg ? I presume you pinned all legs for stability .


    Thanks for sharing Hugo will be pleased to see a painted as well

    Have you put it on FB as well ?

    Hi Nap, thanks for comments. No, there is no pin. I have drilling a pin in the front leg and a pin the rear leg to the base.
    I have no FB yet, perhaps in the new year...;)

    Very well done Ben. I will take your advice about the camel when I start mine probably in the spring. Thanks also for the references.

    Ben, great job on this!
    The camel is very realistically painted and very nice idea to simulate the dust effect on the base.
    Your reference pictures are much appreciated as I am waiting the postman to bring me this kit. :)
