    Hello, dear friends.

    For 10 years I did not pick up a brush and paint. And that's what comes out.

    That’s very nice! Looking forward to your progress.
    Nice that you use the cap. Most use the head with helmet on this one.

    Thank you, Adrian.
    I will also work over my second head in a helmet. On the figure they will be removable. That you could change them.

    I love Alpine Miniatures sculpts, either in 1/16 or 1/35. And this is a beautiful paint job, great flesh tones & highlights.

    Thank You Chris.

    I agree with you. The Alpine sculpture is very good !

    Hello planet!
    I didn't draw a lot of camo. For me, German camouflage has always been beyond. I will bring him in a small way. imgonline-com-ua-Resize-u2VB0VSfP9l.jpg

    Hello planet.
    He began to paint the second head of the figure. The photo doesn't have a finished face yet.
    There are thoughts about painting pants in Erbsenmuster camouflage. I want to ask your advice. About the compatibility of such wearing pants of this camouflage with boots.

    Hi Pete
    Good to see the updates for me the smock looks really good , and I like your having the 2 head option as well

    As for the trousers camo , visually it will certainly be good , different to look at but I also like the possibility of a contrast between the smock and standard issue trousers colour

    Is that a Ron Volsted painting ?

    Look forward to seeing more on this fellow

    Happy benchtime

    Hello, Nap, Steve.

    Thank you all. Yes, you are right this is an illustration of Ron Volsted. The camouflage illustration is very useful. Honestly, I didn't think there was a Dot Pattern camouflage option on the helmet case. Very good idea and cover on the helmet paint in Dot Pattern. But already made a smock sketch. Thanks again for the clue. Why did I decide not to paint my pants in the standard color under the tunic? So to speak beat the view of the figure. I also like the usual performance, for example, brought Jaume Ortiz, light shadows are just a bomb. For me, an example of imitation.

    Looking sharp.

    If you go for the pea dot camouflaged trousers you will imply a late war setting. Several features of the figure suggest early war: the boots, the weapon, the early style comouflage smock, leather belts. All these could still be encountered late in the war, but overall they suggest early war for this setting.

    Personally, I’d opt for the normal green trousers. This makes the viewer focus on the upper part of the figure.

    Great progress so far and I am looking forward to the result!

    Thank you Adrian for the information.
    Now I don't even know what to choose. Just wanted to somehow diversify the figure.

    Hi All.
    A little tinted. Completed the second head.Still, paint your pants in Dot Pattern camouflage.
    I will not stick to the historical factor. I will emphasize the variety of painting of this figure.
