    With our Sahara trip cut short, I thought i might as well finish this young fellow, in oils as usual.

    Great job Pierre. Love the texture work on the parachute harness and the rank chevrons.

    Thanks for the comments guys!

    It was fun painting this one, but I'm afraid Mr Young never jumped with this rig: the D-rings on the bottom shouldn't hang loose but be firmly attached to the snap hooks on the reserve. These snap hooks are missing on the ventral parachute in the kit and it was too tricky to correct that, so there he stands with this error! I hope no jumpmaster will see it! And yes, paratroopers tend to be sticklers for detail:)!

    Cheers,
    Pierre

    Hi Pierre

    Nice to see this finished , nice painting edge silly on the badge details , good uniform colour as well

    Like the texture work on the straps and the nameplate really looks good
