    Gents,
    Here are some better pics of a figure I finished about a month ago.
    54mm Pegaso offering painted almost entirely in oils.

    Hi Arthur

    Excellent work! That uniform colour is a difficult one to capture, and you've got it just right.

    I was going to buy this one, but the boxart put me off it. Now I've seen your version, I think I'll get one.

    Best regards

    Really nice painting, if I'm not wrong this is the full dress uniform. Sometime he was wearing also the all black version, like in the attached picture.
    The pose too is very typical of this guy.

    Pete,
    I tried for the first time highliting with pink and always use purple for the shadows. In this case oils help as well, I usually get much duller reds when painting with acrylics
    Guys,
    Thank You for the comments :)
    I am quite pleased with it as well. Uniform took 2 attempts, first one ending up too blue
    :(
    Like any of the recent Pegaso offerings the sculpting is superb and figure required just a bit of
    putty here ant there to fill gaps. Highly recomended!!!
    Gino,
    yes steps are included with the kit as well as a seperate torso with a different head and a bonus medallion (with Duce's likness) that can be placed on the base.
    Cheers,
