    Yip that is amazing given that its 1/35 scale, the guy looks freezing and to create the different textures and finishes using a brush at this small scale is a special skill.

    Great work, Mike - best part for me is the way you've stippled the greatcoat to give the rough woollen serge look.

    You never seem to stop surprising us Mike! Great textures and he looks suitably, miserably frozen.
