    Ernesto,

    This is great. Painting a boxart. What an honour. And i must say because this is not my favorit period i really really like what you did.
    Camo is absolutely perfekt painted, and that face :eek: :eek: .

    Ernesto,

    WOW! That really looks great so far..... I knew I chose wisely for the box art painter :) Seeing the results thus far I am very honored that you accepted! Like everyone else I can't wait to see it completed. I love how you do the fleshtones....it almost looks like a picture of a real person ;)

    To answer everyones questions, this is (will be) kit LB16079 and is a German Alpine Trooper in 120mm which was an old Resin 8 figure if I remember correctly without looking through all my paperwork. This figure will be ready for release within 3-5 days after boxart is done.

    Keep up the good work Ernesto, your efforts are appreciated more than you know.

    Merry Christmas!

    Hello first of all Merry Christmas for all of you :) I just wake up some minutes ago (too much wine) lol....I´m glad for your comments

    Guy "King of camo" LOL I´m trying to do my best, those camo are a really hard work but a lot of fun to paint it, in this scale it is not too difficult...BTW I like your avatar, that Santa looks like you :lol:

    Marc thank you my friend, you should try someday to paint a German camo soldier, you will enjoy it...

    Darla the honor is mine, this is a nice sculpted figure, the sculpt is great and also the cast, I´m very glad you like my paint version, I hope you enjoy the process...

    best wishes for all in this season

    Ernest, That is very very nice. Your camouflage painting is among the best. An original uniform is the only thing that would be better. Fantastic!~Gary

    Hi Ernest
    Nice painting.The camo looks very good.
    Correct me if I'm wrong but,as far as I can see the trousers don't look like padded reversible uniform,then they would be Field grey,or another camo pattern instead white.
    regards

    thank you Guy and Jim, I´m glad you like it :)
    Jaume, I have some pics reference where the trousers are reversible to the white invernal camo and the camo looks very similar to the one I´m doing, also the figure is for comision and they want it just like this...thank you for your comment ;)
    ciao
