    Monty. The whole model is done using Vallejo acrylics. The leather is a number of thin layers of leather brown built up using an airbrush to give me the depth of colour on the model.

    Very nice work. Good detail on the ribbons too. Difficult job well done.

    Excellent rendering of Monty, like your color choices. Now for my "but", Monty's battledress jacket cut from woolen fabric and should have more texture to it. Presently the photos give a canvas like sheen. Try a jabbing action with your brush. Cheers Eh!

    You've managed to bring out monty's features very well with your painting and you've also done some great work on the leather as well

    Nice work Pops and it always wise to paint presents from your children . If they see them painted they keep buying , if the stay in the stash they get the idea they have bought the wrong thing and stop buying .
    The only thing I might suggest is the hair and moustache are a bit too grey , remember Brylcreem made hair darker and Monty was a dapper gent .
