    here is my latest figure. It is a 120MM sculpt from Jeff Shiu Miniatures and it is absolutely fantastic. So good infact that I just purchased every figure in his line. The figure is painted as always in Vallejo acrylics.:)

    Dan,
    That is a fantastic figure & your painting is superb! I bought that figure & the Fallschirmjager MG34 gunner figure from Jeff just before Xmas & am waiting for them to arrive from HK, & it's really nice to have a painted example to look at for reference. Thanks for sharing!
    Cheers,

    Looking very sharp and nice!

    The figures from Jeff is some of the nicest on the market these days, the castings are wonderful and they are packed with details!

    VERY nice painting indeed -the face is excellent!

    I have a couple of Jeff's WW2 German figs and they are amongst the very best German figs in 120mm or indeed any scale.

    Jeff's also a very nice bloke to deal with.

    That figure looks absolutely fantastic. Ive never really been into larger scale figures but after seeing this model I am really tempted to get one. Just had a look at the other Jeff Shiu Miniatures on the website and they all look great. Does anyone know how to order them - is it just through email direct from HK?
    cheers Mat

    Mat,
    You can order direct from him in HK. Jeff's e-mail is jeff_shiu@hotmail.com & he takes PayPal. He always responds promptly to enquiries & posts stuff out as soon as he's received your payment; he's a really nice guy to deal with too, remembers all his previous customers.
    HTH,
    Chris.

    Just received mine a few minutes ago in the post - a gorgeous piece of casting! The only minor niggle I've got about it is that there's no W-SS sleeve eagle on the left sleeve (this was on greatcoats as well as tunics), but somebody out there must do a W-SS or Army eagle in photoetch - Mr. Verlinden or Nimix perhaps? Let me stress though, this is a really minor niggle & in no way detracts from the superb quality of the figure.
    I'd really love to see Jeff do some Allied stuff too - what about it?

    Dan,

    That's great painting, I like it a lot!

    I just got this figure a few weeks ago and I am with the others: it is absolutely superb! Please all go and buy more of Jeff's figures; the good ones should be supported...

    Anyway, great work and I'll keep your pictures as reference!

    Cheers,
    Adrian
