    Hellow guys,i am νοτ painting very often WWII figures but that figure is one of the most attractive to me,so i painted it adding some more details, like a piece of fabric on the head and some battle damage to the uniform.Hope you like it,Chris.

    Brilliant work Chris, the camo on his trousers, the doll & wood effect on the rifle stock are outstanding!

    Congrats, Chris! One of the best renditions to one of the best Andrea kits.

    The piece is rich in colours and depth owing to your artistic choices. Particularly noticeable is the way the snow camo is depicted. If you dont mind a harsh audience I have to say that the way white varies in tone has not resulted in one of the more photo-real visual effects explored by fellow figure-painters, though it is pleasing enough to the eyes. This is just my view.

    The wall is alive.

    Great job, and I agree that it is one of the best renditions of this kit I've seen. Your color palette is absolutely spot on too.

    Probably the best version of this figure I have ever seen. Every bit of it is flawless. Outstanding work. Please keep posting your work, it is educational just to look at.

    Excellent paintjob on this kit! Love the whites, this is about as close as I've seen anyone get the whites of the reversible jacket in miniature, based on pictures of the real thing in the field they didnt stay white very long at all. Excellent! Keep up the great work.
