    Joining the party with J McCudden VC a Hawk Miniatures figure, just blocked out the face, had an issue with the eyes. . . As you do, so they are going to be revisited when it's dried off a bit. I will be glad of any tips on the uniform when that starts as WWI isn't my thing at all. It's already been pointed out he's missing a collar dog :facepalm: So that will be a LOT of fun to do

    Hi everybody

    Bit of an update , not too mch it's been to hot to sit painting ..even in a thong......LOL ....on my French fellow

    ......neck cloth and gloves all done ......

    .....wine bottle (with a 1917 label on it ) painted up ( not secured as I need to paint the flesh ) will probably add a few more highs ..it is actually a lot greener! )

    Works a bit more on uniform colour .... That's it !

    Still to do buttons , numbers on collar tabs fleshwork and helmet so it's getting there !

    On Billy ( no pics! ) started on flesh ..just defining tones then hair and nameplates for both

    Thanks for looking in

    Face is done, bit happier with the eyes but not totally. Uniform is blocked in, can you guys tell me if the colour is ok for the jacket, will probably go lighter on the shirt as it looks too similar to the jacket.

    Great work. This is a fascinating project and I'm thinking about doing a vignette as a boxed diorama encased in a WWI helmet. Can anyone direct me to a source for WWI figures (British or American) preferably in 75mm? Thanks.
