    My colleague asked me to paint a figure for him.
    So i told him he buy what he like and how he would have to paint it.
    He bought trough ebay this "old" but very good figure from Latore and told me how he would like to see it painted.
    Who i'm I to ignore his wishes :D. So i painted it for him like he asked me to.
    Let's here what you think about it...

    Excellent painting Marc. I agree with the others, the checkered pants are well done. The only thing I noticed right away was the base seemed too small for the figure/base and overhangs the top portion of the base.

    Thanks Guy,
    You'r right about the base. It's just 1 mm that he hangs over. But my colleageu wanted it his way. He bought no other one.....just without asking what to buy.
    So that's the way it was.

    Mike Meechan beat me to it. . .

    Well durn burn it, Mike Meechan beat me to it . . . drum roll please. . . once
    again. But hey that is Hokay, maing. Great minds think alike. . . .yeh right.

    But Marc, this is very nice. I also especially like the large checks on his
    drawers. . . pants, pantaloooooooons, whatever. A very nice touch.

    But I will admit, and I'm told confession is good for the soul. . . eh . . .
    I don't have the courage to try and paint that much bare flesh. Yours looks
    first rate.

    rick - over and out

    PS. Is there anyone here who remembers Admiral Rickover???? :):)

    Rick,
    It was for me also the first time to paint so much flesh. But what the heck, for every thing there must be the first time. If you don't try, you don't know iff it works..

    Roc, my friend.
    Thank you for the nice comment.
