    You know I'm only jealous of your other mm mounted's that I'll bet are on order,
    as well as the two you have just received Ron ;)

    Did you spot the cheaper mounted Carabinier ? (MMCV series).

    No need to worry Del , solid centre.... And so's the figure.

    So sorry Ron that couldn't Be kept in !

    I like the idea of the blanket rolled over the shoulder though,

    Del? Do you need anymore led watches, just got a full fret of 'em there.
    I'm gonna put an upright sliver of foil on one and have a celt with a sundiall on his arm !

    Nighty night chaps, just going to polish my shirt and iron my brogues for work

    On Sunday, I spotted a superbly painted set of flats in a scene by Benadikt Widmann on the Figure Painter International Facebook page. I have always had a soft spot for flats, Roger's (billy turnip) fault from way back.

    Anyway, dropped Roger a PM to see if he had seen it. This lead him to tell me about the range of flats by 'Jupiter Miniatura'. Roger then mentioned I should email Brian Kewood at 2d figurines as he stocked some of the Jupiter range.

    Quite by chance, I then spotted this on Benadikt's Facebook page from Jupiter painted by Dirk Ewert, a flat bust 80mm French Guard.

    Monday morning, emailed a pic to Brian Keywood who was very helpful considering I forgot to attach the picture in my first email. He confirmed he had one and I did the deed via PayPal.

    Today, Tuesday, the figure arrived and it is simply gorgeous.

    So, I now have a large(ish) flat to paint......... I think you will all agree that this is Roger's fault :D but brilliant customer service on Brian's part at 2dfigurines. Many thanks Brian.

    :eek::eek: & double :eek:! Ask Roger how long it took him to start tinkering with oils, on flats!

    Flats, are a discipline in their own right, and not easy.

    I look forward to seeing this mate you will enjoy them, they are a different challenge and you learn so much.

    At our Bolton club meet last month, we had bring and buy,

    I saked Pete how much he wanted for two figures and could we do a deal 'cause they are really badly squashed !


    That's two more flats to do, and I haven't finished even one of my stash.

    Oh I know they are not easy, I have ruined quite a few to learn that. The only presentable one I achieved was the amazing Amy Johnson by Rich Odell. That was posted on here http://www.planetfigure.com/threads/rich-sculpts-amy-johnson.66843/ last year. Absolutely beautiful sculpt and a dream to do. Of course, Roger had to his better than mine nut I enjoyed it lol. This will be harder as I just went for a soft look on Amy which may not suit this character ;)

    Cheeky git, that is finished.......... I am hurt now and feel my work is not appreciated..... I will build a bonfire of paint and figures this very evening and rid the world of my talentless efforts......

    Or you could scroll down the thread a bit and see the end result, this is the WIP picture. It was all done in a day apart from primer which was done the day before.

    I did say I went for the soft look :D

    :D, let you off this time ;). I was very happy with it at the time but Roger put a lot more life into his version. That's what comes with experience.
