    Hi All, my name is Filippo and I'm a 1/35 AFV's Italian modeller from Brescia and sometimes I try to paint some 1/35 figures.
    Here some works I made some years ago. Hope you like.
    I would like to try acrilics but I found great problems to create the right hues.
    Ciao

    Welcome to the Planet Filippo. Your figures look very good. I would be inclined to stay with what you are happy with paint wise. Oil/Enamel works well for you, and acrylics are a whole new ball game. What do you paint your AFVs with?

    Wow! Some beautiful work there Filippo(y) Very close attention to the scale effect of the colour schemes - impressive! I love the "Topolino".

    Hi Filippo,

    Welcome to PF! I'm very impressed by your Austin Tilly, & was your King Tiger based on a photo in one of the Panzerwrecks books?
    Great work you've shown us already, thanks for sharing it here.
