    Super work Kevin.
    The jacket is looking very realistic and all of the mutterings etc on the helmet lining was well worth the time and trouble.
    Well done Mate, great progress.

    Hi Kevin,
    I think the cameras settings are affected by the reflection from the hand on the helmet shot. For all that you can still see the super detailing on the lining.
    Once you paint the hand it should improve the shot.
    Cheers,
    Keith

    Hi Kev, jacket looks great, reminds me of an old one of mine that is still standing in the back of the garage muttering to itself, and the Helmet looks good too so it's well done to you and to Jimbo(y)(y).
    Best wishes, Gary.

    I'm loving the Patton bust Nap. I've thought about getting it myself, but have been waiting to see one done up first.
    I love the texture and details you can put into such a large amount of leather. Great work so far mate, keep it up.

    Hi Guys,

    Thanks for the comments , the surface hsd great texture on it and like Tony said a large area to put so much in .

    I did a review on this if you want to have a look at it here:http://www.planetfigure.com/threads/general-george-patton-from-rp-models.66945/watch-confirm

    Must admit I am enjoying this , if you want to purchase one then contact RP at hpereira@rpscalrmodels.com.......you won't regret it
