  1. I approached this one with quite a bit of trepidation, never painted female flesh before, and the box art is quite amazing. So i have gone for a more suntan/olive skin approach, thinking she has been out in the open for a fair amount of time. All painted with oils over an acrylic base. Its amazing to see how 'off' the standard 'flesh' colour on her right arm ( Scalecolor artist acrylics) is. Need to tidy up her eyes and obviously paint her right arm, but pretty happy with were we are at the moment.
  2. Virtually every figure on Aliexpress is a pirate copy. Thats why they are so cheap.
  3. Finished this superb bust of Yuri Gagarin from 2Dreamers All painted with Scalecolor artist tube acrlyics.
  4. Finally got a bit of dry weather , overcast to get some outside shots of my finished RP models 1/9th Herbert Hassler; Compass bevel was made with about 6 layers of vallejo still water Water was made with 'Wilko' ready mixed filler, coated with various ScaleColor Artist Blues, Greens and grays, sealed with Vallejo water effects.

  6. Started work on this excellent 1/9th bust by 2dreamers. A review is here After some very quick cleanup work, the torso was sprayed with Halfords Grey Primer, which goes on very well and for the size of the can its a lot lot cheaper than Tamiya's, which i have noticed when using the latest can, the coverage isnt that great. Then a coat of Vallejo Grey was sprayed onto the Helmet areas, and also from below at an angle to put some shadows onto the flight suit. Then Vallejo White grey, again sprayed onto the helmet structure picking up the raised details and filling in some of the shadows. This was also sprayed at an angle from above to pick up the raised surfaces on the flight suit. Next a pre made mixture of Tamiya Flat Red and Flat Yellow was sprayed gently over the whole suit, trying to keep some highlight and shadow details visible. Once dry lighter and darker shades of the orange were sprayed in accordingly. Few more highlights and shadows added to the suit. Pipes have been picked out as has the zip. Will add a few more highlights to the white helmet. and a few touch ups, then it will be onto the face and head. Pipe on his right shoulder needs repainting in brown.
  7. Nearly there now; Base needs edging and a plinth ordering to take it, along with a SAS Badge and a Gallantry Medal. Last post for a while as off on Holiday for a week on Saturday, down to gorgeous Carbis Bay.
  8. Got the poster made up today, will get it printed on some photo paper, also got his Blackeard patch added to his rucksack ; Still got to touch his arm joint in
  9. After some debate on a couple of SAS facebook pages, it seems i had totally the wrong colour for his footwear, so following ref images they have been redone as a pair of La Sportiva, and thats how they are staying
  10. Havent had chance to get any painting done recently, but have now finished off his trainers, custom colours mixed to try and match the photos;
