    Thoughts?

    Wings Cockpit 1/32nd
    Sculpted by Nino Pizzichemi
    Thanks to David Allen :)

    BTW had to marvel at the detail that Nino manages to capture in his work.

    Just WOW!
    One could perfectly think it's a 90mm, both for painting and sculpt

    Hey mate that's nice thing to say.
    Niño's attention to detail is incredible.
    Only possible to truly appreciate as you start to paint.
    So much going on in this figure too.

    Thanks

    Thank you Colin.
    Stitching on harness wasn't easy & not that evident in photos, so will get some clearer ones done when I return from holidays in a couple of weeks.

    Stay safe

    Well shoot, I would just be repeating myself. You already know what I think! He, he, he.

    Congrats to your son! And Mike, don't you go drinking too much champagne or eating too much wedding cake or it'll be a rough ride home!

    Thanks Zeno for figure & wedding comments.
    Eldest son is marrying a Ukrainian Russian girl.
    Her parents are coming out if Russia & Koh Samui is half between there & here :)
    Only catch is neither of us speak the others language - hopefully iPad & translator will help ;)

    Stay safe

    Thank you as always John.
    Strange, didn't think this little guy would elicit much comment.
    Goes to show how popular Niño's work is though.

    Very nice work Michael, as others have commented, this could easily be a larger scale figure. You've certainly excelled yourself again mate.

    Yep they look a little fragile but are reasonably secure.
