    Hi Mario

    Coming along nicely there , agree with Simons comments

    Black boots would be a nice contrast to the trouser colour

    I’d push the highs on the flesh a tiny bit more

    This is a complicated figure both in pose and details and your doing it and yourself much credit

    Look forward to seeing more updates

    Happy benchtime

    Don't do anything hasty, put it aside for a little bit, make a cup of tea or coffee, and pick it up to fix the problem, if it is a problem.
    What happened?

    There is the apochryphal story that on one occasion Churchill remarked to the King that Monty wanted his job, King George VI replied, “I rather think that he also wants mine.”!

    Churchill's two encouraging epithets were; ATD - action this day (and attention to detail), and KBO - keep buggering on! Good advice for all modellers, especially when our mojo gets lost!

    It's good to get to the end of a figure when you have worked hard on it, looking forward to the pictures.

    Mario that is one to be proud of as Merryweather said the texture on the jumper is brilliant, it looks like real wool. The trousers too are very well done the highlights are blended in with style, I love it. The chair is really good as well, especially the wood.

    The beret and badges are looking good as well , the face works well
