    Hi Guys and Gals,

    Thought I'd better introduce myself. Some of you may know me from Facebook or other forums. I joined PF some time ago but have not posted. TBH I don't find it the easiest site to navigate (I use an iPad mainly)

    I mainly paint busts, and the occasional 1/16 figure (eyesight failing and all that). I have moved away from Military subjects (although I have one more to do) and just paint what catches my eye.

    I paint in oils over acrylic or enamel, no other reason than it suits my painting time and I can't get on with acrylics other than a base coat.

    so i suppose I ought to post some pics of my latest bust, The Whaler by Green Monkey Models
    Whaler2.jpg Whaler3.jpg Whaler4.jpg Whaler3.jpg Whaler5.jpg Whaler6.jpg

    I always forget to dust my models before I take pics.

    Cheers for looking
