    Jacek,

    Cool. I'm not into this era, but this is cool. Love the camo on the jacket, the way the camo is smeared on his face, and the weathering of his pants, especially the knees. Eyes also look very good.

    Jacek has just pulled off(with great skill and talent I might add) one of the hardest effects on modern figures, that of making cammo cream look realistic! Even without the green face paint the figure is fantastic so well done Jacek on having the courage to put more paint over and on top of a great job.
    OK now how did you do it?????

    Fantastic figure jacek. You've really done an excellent job with the camo. This is about as lifelike as any figure I've ever seen. The monkey is a cool touch too.

    Hi Jacek

    Quality stuff! The camo is spot-on. The figure is so eye-catching I didn't notice the monkey first time - I only picked it up after reading the responses :eek:

    I have to agree that it takes some courage to "cam-up" a face that's so well painted. Nice one all round!

    Cheers

    Thank for you kind words and appreciation, Jaguar model is so good it practically paints itself and its hard to do a bad job with it. :lol:
    The method of painting camo on the face is very simple, once the face was painted and covered with varnish I painted the camo-color stripes using a varnish/paint mixture (proportions: 3 varnish - 1 paint).
    This is the entire "trick". I painted the surface several times with thin layers, so that the stripes would look like the soldier applied them with his fingers. Also, you must use flat varnish


    Cheers

    Once again, I can only join the choir.
    -Very good work indeed, Jacek!

    I especially like the eyes and the nails, please tell us more about how youve painted them?

    Cheers

    Thank you again my friends :)

    To Janne:

    I paint the eyes in a perfectly normal way, the only secret is the paint I use as varnish -Tamiya "smoke" , plus that the white of the eye is not white but off-white with a bit of pink.
    as for nails: i paint the entire nail with light gray paint with a bit of pink and then paint the line accros the nail using dirty-pink paint


    All the best

    Jacek

    Jacek, it's fantastic this one. If I gave out medals, I'd make sure this you'd get one for this.
    It's SO GOOD even I am considering this one, and I don't do modern era figures at all.

    Please share with us your technique for the camo jacket and for the denim jeans he's wearing. I know there's no shortcuts!

    Also, as the scale appears to be pretty big, do share with us any observations on figures in this scale. How tall is it?

    Thanks and very very well done mate.
