    This is a 75m/m scale 75 kit. It is metal and very well cast with tons of detail. I assembled the kit before painting and left off the dog and dog lead til after the dog was painted and fixed onto the base. The hunter was glued onto the base as there was no room for pins according to the way the feet are angled. The underneath of the base with the hunter was covered in 5 minute epoxy glue as I did not want the hunter dropping out of the base. during painting. The dog was blue tacked to a base that had holes for the cast nubs on the bottom of his feet for painting separately.

    This was the first model I painted after my operation and during my continual recovery and therapy.

    The hunter and dog are painted in Acrylics and the bow is oil paint and scale 75 metalics.

    This is the completed model with the dog having drool similar to the box art. The remaining photo's are before the drool.

    The dog got washed out in this photo as the camera was on the wrong setting and I did not notice until after I had taken all the photo.s outside. Then the weather turned bad for weeks of rain so I could not retake them
    The tall grass in the right foreground are paper products. Some of the plants are photo etch that i had left over from other projects. Some single leaves were glued onto toothpicks to make plants and some were tree branches not used before. The branches had a roll of putty placed on them to give a three dimensional effect so they were not completely flat?? STC_2405.JPG

    The base was a great chunk of wood that I glued onto a resized flat base cut to size. Two part epoxy putty was used to extend the base for the trees which were constructed using root plants. The arm with the bow was attached last after most of the ground work was done so that I would not break it of. This was before the trees were added. The trees were pinned to attach to the base and they were added last and the ground work blended around the base of the trees.

    The shine on the bottom of the cape has been corrected

    The mushrooms were left over from another Andrea kit. I am pleased with the final product.

    All comments are welcomed and encouraged as this is all still a learning project.
    Thanks for taking the time to look

    Cheers

    Look at the size of those ‘Magic Mushrooms’. No wonder the dog is tripping! Seriously though a very nice vignette, and excellently painted. I’m glad to hear your recovery is going well, keep it up.
