    Hi all,

    and yes, it is another german :)

    This is my first painting project after more than a year.

    It is a Dragon plastic figure with a Hornet head, almost no modifications have been made as I only wanted something to practice my painting on.

    It is almost done but still a lot of detail work to be done on the belt, parka and boots + some missing equipment (map case and pistol holster)

    all comments are appreciated

    note the missing cigarette, it is the third one I have managed to loose (after painting it of course :) )

    Hi Luka,
    I am impressed, good colour & camo. I like the face painting. Is it going to be on it's own or part of a group?
    Anyway, keep it up, it's great!
    Mark :)

    Hi Luka.
    I presume this is 1:35 scale? Very well done.I like the camo from his trousers. What colors did you use for this. Is it done with acrylics?
    Keep us posted. Im very interested.
    From which box is the dragon figure?

    Tank you for your comments guys , I appreciate it

    I have not jet decided what to do with it, I am thinking of doing another practice figure before I start painting the figures for a diorama I have got in the making, and then pairing the two of them in a Hungary 45 vignette, or something similar

    Thanks, it feels great to be back!

    Yes, it is 1:35 done in acrylics. For the pants I used the following vallejos: base dark see grey (991) + flat earth (983), dark spots base+ chocolate brown (872)+ a little germen grey (995), bright spots dark flesh (927)+ beige (917)+ a little orange brown (981). Hope this helps, I do not have he exact ratios, I just mix the colors until it looks good.
    the figure is from Dragon 6144 Commanders conference, Kharkov 43
