    always a treat to see your paintings sir. I am still stirred by the young bust of the Athenian hoplite you painted some years ago. That is the figure that showed me how far this art can go. It continues to push me still. Keep it up sir.

    Beautiful detail on the face and helmet there Mike. That's a pretty detailed figure for 1/32, love it.

    Cheers, Ski.

    Thanks for feedback guys, personal replies when I've got a few more minutes.
    A few more shots to show trousers, now for boots & Mae West.

    Thoughts?

    My rough photos aren't doing total justice to Niño's original sculpt, so here's the master sculpt to give you a better feel for the quality of this little chap. I just hope my final boxart will do it full justice.

    Hi John & Neil

    Thanks for your interest guys.
    Life commitments at present prevent a full listing of colours used & unfortunately my approach is not that scientific ;-)

    I hope attached view of my palette & colours/mediums used will do for now.

    Helpful?

    I've been watching this develop with interest Mike, its looking great. I love this figure, I do collect Nino's work so will have to add this one to the collection.

    I'm looking forward to seeing more progression and the finished result.

    Thanks to each of you guys for taking the time to post a note here for me.
    Both reassuring & useful to know I'm on the right track.
    Good to know you are getting value from my posting here.

    Stay safe,
    Mike
