    Hello guys!!

    I put here some photos of since I take this figure. It is a question of the French Infante, of Masteclass to 75mm. Shaped by Antonio Zapatero. It is a nice well, and very agreeable figure of doing, has a face to be illuminated, and the smelting is really good, almost without fins, and with a simple assembly in spite of having several pieces, and equipment.

    I hope that you like.

    Very good start Robert. I particularly like the man's gesture, the raised
    eyebrow, gives life and character. The red and blue are perfect.
    I follow with interest. Saludos.

    Thank you for your comments, guys!!!
    It is a figure very agreeable and entertained to do in spite of the great blue surface of the coat. This weekend, it will try to do more photos.

    Cheers, Robert.

    Hello again, to all!

    Here I return, with more photos of the figure. Just now already this ended the coat for lack of the made dusty end, and the trousers, also I have mounted the lateral bag and the canteen for his later painting.

    I really like what you are doing with this figure Robert, the blues and reds are very nicely done, this is an attractive figure, one I have not seen before.

    Very well done Robert. I like specially the trousers, cause for me, the red is one of the most difficult colors to work with. It´s too easy go to brownish, orangish or pinkish tones. You´ve get a really red tone.

    Excellent painting. The face looks great, and the blue of the coat is very nice and well done, but it may be a little to light of blue for being a French armie' capote .

    Thank you very much for your comments, guys!

    Marius, the blue coat is slightly darker in reality, the photos clarify much about the original tone.

    Megroot, I have not lessons with Jaume Ortiz, but it's one of my favorite painters, especially in the WWII.

    Hi everyone!
    Well, I leave some photos of how far the France Infant, I've pasted the whole team minus the trumpet and the gun that attach to the end, with the figure and placed on the ground and the culmination of this work. In the backpack, having different materials, I tried to give a different look to the blanket by a subtle texture that simulates strong cloth or wool. The next step in a bit dirty and dusty figure, I do not enguarrinarla much, so it comes to washing with some earthy tones and pastels coat to the underside of the pants and boot covers that I have painted in a shade of white dirty enough not to cover the detail of this area with paint.
    I hope you like it.

    These photos are from the ground as this right now, I have expanded with caulk the pavement and the fence I have built with wooden sticks, I need to simulate the nails that bind these to the beams. Across the fence, a portion of lawn rage on, as if it were a small garden or park French.
