Hi,

Here is another figure, this one I finished a while ago. Figure is from Imperial Gallery part of their 1/16 scale series.

Enjoy...

That's so good I could almost tell you his name!

The finish on that Charley G looks really effective (I've just remembered how heavy they were) as is the whole model :thumbsup:

Great model Richard, thanks for showing it here.

cheers

Very nicely done. I love the flesh painting and wet effect on the ground and his boots you have done. Great work.

Looks like a fine bit of figure modelling to me too. Must say I don't know what a 'Charley G' is. Would that be a Carl Gustav anti-tank weapon?

Yes, it was the coloquial name for it, among other things because of it's weight. I remember one of the lads (when we all met up again after the war) that he had "hit a ship" with his during the conflict.

Great painting skill again Richard.

May I ask...

When you paint DPM (and indeed MTP on your Javelin figure) do you bother with the pattern "repeat" or just paint random?

I figure that trying to do the repeat would be grounds to reach for the Prozac.

Excellent figure painting. The face and camo pattern look spot on. :goodjob:

Superb painting on the face, a good figure all over, but the excellent face painting really brings it together. :goodjob:
