    Hello everybody,

    This painted figure was to win at an Military Modelling competition. As I had promised Ken Jones to keep it of the net till after the competition, I only place it now. Actually it was ready before Euro Militaire, so it's really an oldie.

    So, the figure is true 1/35th scale, comes in resin and is produced by Alpin Miniatures (another master piece from the hands of Taesung Harmms!). The head was replaced with an Hornet one. As always all was painted in acrylics and ink, while pigments were thrown in for the weathering. The groundwork is a mix of Magic Sculp and pigments while the tuffs of grass are by Joefix. The helmet in the mud is a resin casting by Ultracast while the empty bottle is by Calibre35. All is mounted on an Aldamodel base.

    I would love to hear what you guys think of it.

    Best wishes,

    Gino
