US Navy SEAL - 1/16 Legends Productions
theaa2000 posted a topic in Figure Ready for InspectionEvening all Although I finished this a while ago, I never took any decent photos (or posted it here), but since I (and the rest of the country) are spending their time at home, now is the perfect time for both This is Legends Productions 1/16 US Navy SEAL Operator (No. 1 since there are 3 models). Although I'd painted several 1/35 figures before (badly), the small size meant I could never pull of UCP or Multicam properly, so I decided to build a large scale figure. This was one of Legends new figures which they modelled in 3D on a CAD programme and then, I think 3D printed to make the master for casting - the benefit of this is very precise fit so construction was a breeze! This left more time for the more difficult part of painting Not having any clue what colours to use, I printed out a sample of Multicam, and set about trying to match the 6 colours in the pattern (2x base earth/browns, 2x greens & a dark brown and tan/buff colour on top). I used a combination of Vallejo Model Colour & Model Air to match the colours. The face/skin was also a Vallejo base with details, shadows and highlights done oils - actually all the blending and weathering of the whole figure was done with oils as they gave me a long enough working time to get everything right. Final weathering was done on the figure and base with pigments to tie the two together. Probably not realistic, but I felt some colour was needed, hence the blue carabiner - this was painted silver with Tamiya clear blue over it to give it a proper metallic look. The plinth is a one piece resin cast painted black and polished. On top of that I built a simple stone/wood floor base. The detail on the figure is so crisp! The CAD sculpted face is well detailed but a bit sterile compared to something from Alpine or Hornet, not that it matters since most of it is hidden. The casings are actually 1/35 0.50 cal casings, which work out to be quite similar to 5.56 casings in 1/16. Thanks for looking!
ICM SEAL Team Fighter #2 - ICM 1:24 24112
Julien posted a topic in Figure ReviewsSEAL Team Fighter #2 ICM 1:24 24112 The US Navy Sea, Air and Land teams (SEALS) are the US Navy's Special Operations forces under the Special Operations Command. They are organised into Teams and have reportedly one of the hardest entry courses of Special forces as it includes a great deal of water borne elements. Full training can take over a year. Recently Seal Team 6 was in the news as part of the Osama bin Laden operation. This second figure depicts a seal kneeling after emerging from the water. There is a main sprure of the figure, one of equipment, a rubber spure with flippers and hoses; and a small clear spure with a dive mask lens. The torso is two parts (front & back). The left and right legs are one part each and are added to the torso. There is a mould seam on both sides of the leg to clean up. The arms are added and again these have mould seam to clean up, the shield then attached to one arm. The head is then fitted and a choice of a masked figure or with the mask up can be modelled. Additional swim equipment and other tactical equipment is then added. Conclusion This is a new kit of a modern Special Forces figure in a large enough scale for the detail to pop out.

US Navy SEAL "Duck feet" Vietnam 1/35
Venelin posted a topic in Figure Work In ProgressHello!I'm starting new figure project, this time Navy SEAL from Vietnam era, sculpted by Vladi from Bravo-6. Excellent quality as always. I opted initially for the Tiger stripes camouflage, but the uniform cut is different, so will stay with standard ERDL. I have also small vignette in mind, with water and vegetation
