    Hello again friends from PF. Following the advice of Luis Esteban Laguardia, in this figure have mixed acrylics that I use regularly, with Tamiya flat base for softer and more mate finishes, especially in the horse's body. The truth is that I ´m very pleased with the result because some paints generated some shine and I don´t like it. I must say that using this material, have also changed my way of painting. I hope you like it.
    Muchas gracias por el consejo Luis.

    Perfect job Eduardo.
    But in my opinion a horse can have a little shine.

    Kat, Bill, Marc, Meizi, thanks a lot for your comments. Marc, you're right. A little shine on the horses is not bad, even in the leather, I mean belts or boots. It´s in the fabrics where I don´t like the glossy effect.
    Cheers.

    Thanks for your words, Ron. Certainly the figures of Metal Modeles have a high quality casting and the assemblage is perfect. These characteristics make the work easier.
