Here is my version of Life Miniatures German bust carrying the MG-42 tripod. I choose to paint the Kharkov parka in more of a brown/tan color for a bit of variety. The Andrea Miniatures brown paint set was used for the parka. The brown paint set has showed to be very useful as it contains some great color choices. The rest was painted with Vallejo and Reaper acrylics, with the exception of the rifle stock which was painted with oils. It was fun bust to paint, but the face was very hard to paint to a satisfactory result. I am not sure exactly why, as the sculpt is really nice. The eyes are not symmetrically sculpted which made it hard to paint them evenly, the figures left eye is much more open then the right side. All in all though I am pleased with the results and it was a lot of fun.
