    Finished this tonight but will snag tomorrow.
    If you ever want to paint this bust make sure you get the mg belts, clips and positions in place first.
    I did it last and there was not one profanity that didn't come out of my mouth during the hours of fitting them.

    Other than that the bust went together really well and is a great sculpt. IMG_E2111.JPG IMG_E2108.JPG IMG_E2106.JPG IMG_E2116.JPG IMG_E2103.JPG

    Excellent paint work! Are the helmet decals hand painted or decals?

    That's a lovely job you have done Grant, have missed seeing your work on here lately, seems you haven't lost your touch though.

    Hi Scott decals used on the helmet and grenades.
    Cheers,
    Gells



    Hi Steve, hope you're doing well.

    Yeah, it has been a while. I've been doing a lot of Warhammer stuff...there's loads to learn from doing them you can take to larger figure painting.

    Thank you for all comments.

    Lovely work on this one, really like the way you have done the helmet and the weathering on all the equipment. The bullets I enjoy looking at as well :)
