    Hi,
    This is a 54 mm figure from Metal Models.
    I'm painting the trousers... I'm not so happy with it...
    ENJOY

    You say you are unhappy with the figure but don't say why...? Personally, I think you are doing a great job and I especially like the muted yellow colouring

    Do you not prime your figures before painting? I think it is classic figure in the metal models range, nicely proportioned and posed, you are doing a good job with the painting

    Hi,
    I'm not very happy with the trousers because the paint isn't very smooth.
    I prime the figure step by step.
    ENJOY !

    Hi there

    Good to see you showing the latest , nice figure choice , I like the blue , nice work on the facings

    As for the legs ...perhaps the paint needs thinning further

    Interesting you prime as you go

    Looking forward to seeing more

    Happy benchtime

    Hi,
    Here is the gun...
    The head is not fixed yet.
    Yes, I'm going to go ahead with white and do some lights on the trousers.
    ENJOY !

    Very nice work, will you be adding any weathering - washes dry brushing?

    Hi,
    Thank you all.
    What do you mean about "adding any weathering" ?
    Do you want to say "make it dirty", in campaign ?
    ENJOY !

    Yes some find by adding a degree of wear and tear or dirt/dust to the figures it can help to make the details stand out and give them a real life look.

    Yes you (they) are right.
    I will do some but very light because I think this figure, to get a good weathering, needs to be modify a little (like in campaign).
    ENJOY !

    Hi,
    Done !
    I appeal to your critical sense to advance my painting. Don't hesitate to say what can be improved, what you don't like... Thank you.
    ENJOY !

    Maybe I have to improve the scenery ? What do you think ?

    Have you fixed the figure down to the base with strong glue? only reason I ask is because a slightly larger base would show the figure off better, your detail and painting skills are really good sir.

    You're right.
    Before I used base slightly larger.
    I'm currently using narrow bases in the hope of making the figure stand out more.
    But slighty larger is better... I have to use some bases like this one first, because I bought some, and I will change...
    Thank you "W"
