    Hi all,

    When Taesung from Alpine offered me to paint the "boxart" for one of the new figures I didn't had to think twice: Alpine figures have always good sculpting, amazing detail and superb casting! There is a bit "timepressure" but that makes it all the more exciting. All is done with acrylics, except the mud which was done with Mig pigments. As soon as this figure is ready, I'll post some more pics.

    All comments, critism, etc is more then welcome.

    Best wishes,

    Gino

    Gino,
    quick question...why have you started the mud before the painting is done? Are you going to paint it before its all done? I know I get the "can't wait till its done" syndrome and I sometimes get ahead of myself, but I was just curious. Crazy as it may sound, I like the addition of the wedding band. I think its the small things that make the difference!

    Be sure to show him off when your done!

    Hi all,

    As this figure will soon be released I thought it was appropiate to post some pics of the finnished boxart figure. The figure is in resin, true 1/35th scale and painted completely in acrylics. As with all Alpine figures, this one comes with two different heads.

    I would like to hear what you think of it?

    Greetz,

    Gino
