    hello guys,

    this is my last figure,
    it is in 1/35 scale.

    It is dedicated to one of the grand masters of modelling,Calvin Tan

    He was the one who taught me most of my modelling skills until today!





    hope you like it!

    Very good sculpted figure Andreas!
    Face, trousers and left leg are for me the best parts of the figure.
    Left hand (holding the gun) and right knee are looking a bit odd, maybe have a look at it.

    thanks marcel!

    the issue with his hand was fixed already as it looked kinda strange to me on the photos:)right knee will be retouched

    Some people say that the gun would be out of balance and no soldier would hold it like that.you think so too?

    Im kinda pleased with his trousers:)face is dragon though;)

    Hi Andreas,

    I think it looks pretty good, like the previous post already mentioned.
    You achieved fairly realistic folds and good overall pose, particularly considering that you have not yet been sculpting for a long time (if I remember correctly from an earlier post).
    If I could make one (hopefully constructive) comment, it is that your figure seems to suffer from straight-neck syndrome: the spine seems to continue in a straight vertical line into the neck, whereas the neck should 'tilt forward' quite a bit. I hope I make myself clear.
    Having said this, it is kinda hard to see in your pictures, so maybe my remark is not applicable..... ;-)

    Keep on going and someday Calvin Tan will dedicate something to you!
