    Hi guys,

    Attached are the final pics of my latest piece , Pegaso's awesome 90mm US Marine Vietnam 1968 depicting a Marine rifleman during the siege of Khe Sanh. First time I've painted very dark skin colour and I must admit it was fun to try something different. The sculpting on this figure is just superb. It went together like a dream. I love the "gung ho" stance and the attitude.

    Painted in oils over acrylics.

    Its nickpiking, I know but having checked with my old(1970) jungle boots...the soles of the casting are much too thick.
    A superb paint job though.

    Really great job on the Afro-American skintone... something I've found really difficult myself. I've been told the easiest skintone to paint... is your own.
    Also a great job on the faded out OD fatigues (they usually get painted far too bright) and the red clay stains on the knees.

    Overall good job on a beautiful figure

    Sorry Tony, I missed this one. Looks even better than when I saw it last time.
    You really nailed the uniform colour and Afro-American skin tones. Did you use pastels for the red dust?
    Superb work, mate!
