    Hello, everyone.:)
    I have begun to paint a new figure.
    (U.S.M.C. BAR GUNNER)
    This is a product of S&T PRODUCTS.
    I don't glue a hand with a gun together.
    It's expected to install this after painting.
    A head became united with a body.
    I wanted to install a head after painting ended but that wasn't made.
    Sling of a gun also attaches.;)
    I'd like also to glue that together after painting.:eek:

    Hi Mitsutaka, On to another figure already? I wish I could paint as quick as you. Looks like a great figure, nice character and pose, Korean war isn't he? Once again your ground work sets off your figures nicely.

    Thank you very much, Pedro.

    Hello, Pedro.
    Thank you very much for your kind comment.:)
    I think this figure is quite old figure.
    But this was also in good condition, and it was easy to put together.:eek:

    Thank you very much, Ben.

    Hello, Ben.
    Thank you very much for your kind comment.:)
    Yes, this figure are U.S. Marines of the Korean War.
    A figure of an American soldier of the Korean War thinks I have a lot of something of this uniform often.:rolleyes:
    I'm thinking I'll make snow fall about a ground work.:eek:

    Thank you very much, Costas.

    Hello, Costas.
    thank you very much for your Encourage with a kind word.:)
    I'm making a big figure much at present.
    So I came to think I'd like also to make a small figure.:rolleyes:
    A big figure is a high price, so I often make 120mm figure of a Verlinden.:eek:

    Mitsutaka,
    That's a great figure you got there. If i may do a suggestion. Make the hole's in his coat real. Take a drill and drill them out. It's gonna look more lifelike.

    Looking forward to this figure being painted up!

    He looks like a Korea war USMC Bar Gunner, rather then a WW2 gunner.

    Thanks for sharing as you go!

    Thank you very much, Marc.

    Hello, Marc.
    Thank you very much for your kind comment.:)
    Your idea is wonderful.
    This figure has a part with a hole in a uniform already.
    That's interesting, so I may carry out.:eek:

    Thank you very much, jamie.

    Hello, Jamie.
    Thank you very much for your kind comment.:)
    I made a figure of U.S. forces of the quite much Korean War.
    The all was this uniform.
    I think this is the coat put on in winter, but I don't know whether Marine Corps of U.S. forces were always this uniform during a war.:eek:

    Actually, that figure is meant to represent a US Marine at the Chosin Reservior in the winter of 1950. This would not be the standard uniform throughout the year, as temperatures in Korea can range from very hot summers to very, very cold winters (-25 to -35 F during this battle). Dead Marines were stacked like wood on the backs of tanks to remove them, as they were frozen solid. Frost bite was as likely as being wounded or killed by gunfire.

    He is wearing a winter parka and mittens. I would use a different base because of this, one a bit more wintery and rocky, as this battle was also fought in very mountainous and rocky terrain. I have the 3 figure set that includes this figure, and they are very nice indeed.

    Thank you very much, jburch.

    Hello, jburch.
    Thank you very much for your kind information and advice.:)
    I provided me with useful information very much.
    I'd like to complete this figure so that you can like it.:eek:
    A manufacturer is also selling the vignette by which this figure was set as you say, isn't it?
    I have made the fellow's figure which is soon, so I'm painting fellow's figure this time.:eek:

    Thank you very much, Jason. (Basic paint)

    Thank you very much for your nice information, Jason.:)
    This was very helpful.:eek:

    I painted a basis.
    I'm blowing using a hand piece about this work.
    I blew the part where I stuck up after it was applied blackly again.
    I just still painted roughly, and I'm planning to paint completion at the next stage.:eek:

    Completion of figure.

    I have brought painting of completion of a figure to an end mostly on yesterday.:)
    I'd like to take a picture of a complete picture after it's corrected a little more.
    A ground work has been also finished already.
    Pollution of a figure is being painted.
    Remaining work is to stick a title plate on.:eek:
