    Hi all,

    I'm got back from Euro so inspired that I had to start a new figure. I have learned so much (thanks Jaume!) that I had to try this out. What better a subject then an Alpine figure? There so well sculpted and casted that you just have to put paint in your brus and the rest is childsplay. I've seen on the pictures that I've missedaspot in the neck. I will paint this tis evening.

    I'm looking forward to hear all your comments.

    Hi guys,

    Thanks for the comments.

    Yes I'm trying to add more contrast, but also to keep the transitions smoother. For this I use glazes between the highlights:base and base/shadow (big thank you to Jaume for this tip).

    Greetz,

    Gino.

    Hi everyone,

    Included I post a couple of pics on how far I am on this Alpine figure. The top half isalmost finished. I need to do some subtle blending on some small spots of oil. The hands are just basecoated. I'm looking forward to hear all your comments.

    Greetz,

    Gino.

    Hi everyone,

    The Russian tanker is finished and baptized "Joerie". The figure is an excellent resin casting by Alpine miniatures to true 1/35th scale. The shell is turned brass by Army in details (super stuff those guys sell!!!). Most of the vegetation is by El Viejo Dragon (some kind of see weed) and what I found in the garden. All is mounted on a base by D.M.C. designs.
    All comments are very welcome.

    Greetz,
    Gino

    P.S. This painted model is for sale. For more info you can mail me at: beastie-gino@pandora.be

    Excellent figure Gino, I like the composition with the base and the terrain. Did you made that base?

    Hi guys,

    Thanks for the nice comments, it'sreally apreciated.

    Ernest, the base was bought at D.M.C. designs from Germany. I think he supplies the best bases to be found, and he also makes them to order. If you're intrested I can give you his telephonenumber. He does speak English as he's a Canadian living in Germany.

    Greetz,

    Hi Ernest,

    I would like to give his e-mail to you, but problem is that he never checks it. he really hates computersand stuff. Can you send him a fax? I will then send you his fax number.

    Hey Gino,

    I think this is one of your best. I like the whole scene and they weathering on the figure. It is really convincing. The base is fits the scene really well.
