    Hi all,
    Its been some time since my last post,sorry for that!
    This bust from Miniature park,had been in the to do list for some time,and sat in my cupboard for a little too long.
    When I started it,it was more a painting test for me,as I'd had sutch a long break from it all.
    I took around 8hrs to do,I think he look's like Robert Shaw minus the mole? [IMG]

    Hi all,
    Georges;it was painted in all three mediums,face/belt oils,linnen strap and undercoats Humbrols, and the rest acrylics.
    The bust needed a bit of cleaning up,but was rather nice to paint,and I'm rather fond of German subjects of this period,they are a little few and far between!
    Many the for your kind comments.....
    Best Regards

    Nicely done Paul. This is a classic piece in my opinion. Ishii is one of the best in the biz when it comes to sculpting and you've done him justice here. I have this one in the "army" as well. I had quite a bit of cleaning as well. Some was touchy due to where it landed if I remember corectly. I should dig this fellow out again, you've given me inspiration!
