    Hello all,

    I've been working on this JMD miniature's 65mm Prussien Uhlan 1914.

    JMD miniatures web tells the size of this kit is 54mm, but it's little bit larger than standard 54mm. 65mm is the actual size.

    I think he looks pretty good. I know you said you're not finished yet, but maybe touch the highlights a bit more on his leather & the red trim. Will you put him on a base with some groundwork?

    Thanks for your comment, Mike.

    Thanks for your advice. I will try that.

    I haven't decided it yet. Now I'm put it on the resin base which is included in the ket and just painted the base color.

    Excellent work already.
    A little extra highlighting on some of the extreme lights will turn it into a stunning piece of work.

    Cheers,

    Kazufumi this looks great as it is. I dont know about highlights but some weathering at the edges of the leather parts whould look nice. Ecxellent fleshtones.

    Hi! Kazufumi.
    Excellent progress!
    I think your skill is top-ranking.
    An expression of a face and a uniform is very wonderful.
    When instructing a way of detailed painting, if possible, I'm happy.
    I'm looking forward to completion of your work very much.

    Wow...tons of replies...Thanks a lot for your compliments, guys. Mike, Adrian, Matthew, Marc, David, Dimitrios, Cristiane, Mitsutaka...(I don't skip anyone, don't I?:) Thank you very much you all.

    Thanks for you good advice. I didn't realize before you guys pointed out the leather stuff, so I will try something on it.

    Thank you very much for your comment, Mitsutaka, I'm really glad to have such a praise.

    I will try to share my idea about painting as much as possible.

    If there's anyone who are interested in my recipe on painting skintone, please check my PDF here:

    As Mike asked, I thought this figure needs base with some groundwork on it, so I decided to build it.

    I used wood putty for the ground.
