    Super sculpt and casting Palo.
    I like the unfastened buttons and ragged stitching around the button holes. Really nice detail.

    What can I say, you just get better and better. Incredible painting on the face.
    Looking forward to your next installment.
    Cheers,

    Lovely start Mark. This is a very different sculpt and one that I hope proves commercially successful.

    Palo ... many thanks :) It's a very nice sculpt and thanks for the info :)

    Jason and Ben ..... Thank you :)

    Boots ... Thanks for the info ... and thank you! :)

    Xenofon ... Cheers! :)

    Ventress and Keith ... Again thank you :)

    Scot, Joe, Tony and Fabrizio ..... Thank you guys :)

    So some minor progress as work and other commitments get in the way :)

    I'm almost happy with the top lip and the cap is also nearly there :)

    I think I will do the Khaki next, Airbrush to lay down the large areas and traditional hair brushed to pop the details...

    Update soon all being well ;)

    I'm not sure how this is gonna look so next I'll add details and paint the bags/straps.
    I'm pretty sure it will fall into place tonally but I can always work on the khaki some more :)

    Anyone want a shout out on the khaki colours?

    :)

    Gee that is coming along.....

    I think a subtle shading of the uniform will work better once the straps and so forth are painted, rather than a khaki zebra effect (not that I can recall you ever going that far!!)

    Cheers
    Jamie
