    Okay...I promise that this is the last of this that you'll see.
    John Long had suggested that I try using Naples Yellow iinstead of Titanium White when I highlighted the leather jacket. I did and I really like how this looks. Much better than when I was using the T. White.
    Thanks John :)

    Hi guys,
    Thanks for the nice comments. The credit goes to John...thanks again John :)
    Hey Anders, looks like that United Empire Miniatures bust of the young Dracula in the red armor will be next. Just got to get off my butt and start painting it :lol: .
    It's prepped and primed and ready to go.

    Hi Craig.

    I've followed the highs and lows of your bust for quite some time now! The jacket is awesome. You can give credit to John for the color suggestion (which I'll keep in mind), but the paint job is super. That looks like a leather jacket! Nice work.

    Hey Craig, the bust turned out great. I guess persistance pays off. Well done, another fine job. Keep up the good work.

    Craig-

    Where's his Me-262? :lol:

    Well done on the jacket especially.

    Did you add any satin finish to the leather to keep it somewhat shiny? How did you do that?

    Thanks Patrick.

    Thanks to you too Andy. I didn't know that you hung out on here too. Good to see you here.

    Hi Rob. Thanks :). Nice to hear from you again.

    Keith, The finish is just how the oils dried in my drying box. That usually will flatten out any shine but not this time. Maybe it's a characteristic of the Mars Brown.
    I liked the shine too so I'm not going to spray it with a clear flat.
    As for the 262...well, I don't do airplanes, just tanks (hehe). But my friend I did this for is an excellent plane modeler and a big fan of 109's. So he may just end up doing one to go with it :)
    Thanks again to all of you that took the time to comment on this one,
