    Hello, everyone.
    Let me show you my work finished before.

    This model contains 3 first experiences for me.

    1.first mounted model
    2.first 54mm model
    3.first large ground work

    I usually like relatively large models(75mm or 90mm) because one 54mm figure looks too small to display. But I was stunned by the example of pegaso models painted by Mr.Cartacci, so I decided to try 54mm model.
    As a result, I like it very much. This figure is mounted and have a standard so it looked not too small and looked good.
    One more trial was large groundwork. One of my acquaintance "Sukottu san" is very good at making ground work. I was largely influenced. I tried to express vertical expansion(?) or layer composition(?)( I don't how can I say. I mean I wanted to express the height: Brigde, horse, knight and standard.)

    This model took much time to be finished, but I had tons of fun.
    I hope you like him.

    Excellent work Makoto!
    The multi-level setup is very well done. Simple, yet effective.
    The pattern at the coat is extremely well done!
    A very nice piece, congratulations.

    Cheers,

    Thank you for the compliment, Adrian!
    I should've said " the multi-level setup", shouldn't I? I learned a new English expression:).

    The patterns on the coat was very tough to paint, but I think it is very effective.

    Thank you, Peter!

    How did I paint the pattern?
    Well...just patience:)

    at first I tried to make a template, but it was too small to made it.
    I used a masking tape as a guide to draw straight lines. Then I painted the patterns("+" like pattern)freehand between the straight lines. I used oil paints so if I made a mistake, it was easy to erase with terpentine.

    I know it's not the answer you expected, but actually just patience.

    This is really beautiful. It seems like people are afraid to give a holy knight any sort of flash, but they surly had it. They still do. Even in a holy order rich dress was a way to show status, and wealth. The cape with the rich border is a great way to show that. The subtle weathering gives him the look of a knight on campaign. It is hard to believe that this is your first mounted figure. The horse is superbly painted and it is also a white horse which is also quite challenging to pull off. This works on every level. Wonderful work.

    Wow! Makoto Great!:eek:
    I think all your 3 experiments are successful.
    Drawing with the design of the mantle, is indeed it's amazing.
    Indeed the ground work is also wonderful.
    I can't do such wonderful ground work.
    I have regard in your challenge spirit.(y)
    I was quite moved.
    I congratulate completion.
    You'd also make us be surprised at the next work.;)

    Thank you for your very careful observation and comment, Jeff.
    I think painting white horse is a difficult task, but it's very eye-catching.
