    Morning everyone , going through my cabinet i've decided to get stuck in and finish this figure.
    It's another naked-army kit which i have done some modification to, resculpted the right arm and sculpted a sling, also added woolen ankle puttees and resculpted the socks and added some old hankerchief to represent a hescian cover for the helmet and have to finish sculpting the leather watch cover.
    All painted in JoSonja acrylics thus far , face is almost finished a few more touches before i'll be happy ,shirt is complete.
    I know i'm a sucker for punishment but i love the scale and detail in these big boys, plus the big thing i can actually see what i'm doing
    All comments and criticisms welcome.
    Cheers
    Al

    Excellent start Al. You have captured the colours of the shirt and helmet cover very well. The face is great. Looking forward to seeing the finished product.

    A little more progress this morning, blocked in the base khaki for the shorts and added some hair on the arms and adjusted the flesh tone on the face slightly.

    My day off and sitting at the workbench in the gloom of the aftermath of cyclone Debbie, North Queensland copped the full brunt of it now we in the South east of Queensland are copping the rain depression, flash flooding and a forecast of up to 400mm of rain in the next 24 hours may invest in a snorkle mask and fins me thinks,adding some more highlights to the shorts and retouching the webbing , i've blue tacked the rifle in place to take some photographs.

    Superb mate. Painting the apparently simple khaki is anything but. Top notch stuff.
