Good progress Nikolay, they're looking good. 👍🏼

Thanks, Roger! I painted her hair and performed some painting steps on the men, but now I need to made a pause before the build became boring or even frustrating.

Hello Britmodellers,

 

now I can call the Lady finished (except the nón lá):

The artifacts on the face caused by the light and the clear coat. I tried to push my skills to the limit and after the basic painting I added the brown wash on the neck, wrists and the ankles. The black wash was applied around the hair. Also I painted an eyebrows to give a face some alive feeling and added the Tire Black to the eyes. I think it’s enough with her because it’s just a single brush move between the «already done» and «ah, what have I done?!» states...

 

Thanks for looking! 😉

She's looking very good, Nikolay! :clap: 

 

Painting the eyes in this scale is a real challenge, overdoing it is a real risk - I think you chose a good compromise, she looks the part :goodjob:

 

Ciao

OK guys,

 

I mixed some paint and decided to give it a try on this man:

It was a mixture of the AK Interactive paints instead of the basic Mr.HOBBY H303 I used on the panamas. Then I applied an artificial shadows with a darker tone and finally, the skin tone. The uniform was dry brushed and now looks worn.

 

Not a bad experience, but I need to try my preferred method with a Mr.HOBBY paint, too.

 

Thanks for looking! 😸

Yes, just after some touch-ups and the clear coat.

 

I think after all my experiments I can have the soldiers with a slightly different uniform colors. Well, we’ll see. Anyway, I need to try something new.

 

Also I rediscovered the great article about the uniforms and other stuff from the Vietnam War era: Vietnam - Equipment and Uniform. There’s a lot of the useful information and pictures.

Hello friends,

 

my mother said that I need to paint the Lady’s eyes. Why not to try?! 🤔 Well, with a sliced toothpick I did it:

The man also received some improvements on his face and ammunition:

As you can see, I decided to reproduce the «Tiger Stripe» camouflage pattern on a panama. Looks not bad when blurred on the picture! 😉

 

Thanks for watching! 👏
