Tamiya 1/24 Artillery officer


Recommended Posts

Very old kit made of metal with a plastic base. This was a project made to practise new painting tools using artist oils. Not my finest hour, but it´s a milestone in figure painting. The base was marbled using German grey, Royal Navy Grey and flat white. The paint was dabbed on using stiff brush and sponge.

Thank you Bertie! It was a good start up to dip my feet into the domain of figure painting. Now I´m on the roll, painting US Mortar crew set from Tamiya. Good ol´vintage from the 70s. 👍🍷

Very nicely done!  👌 

The base is really good and you've captured the detail on the figure.

Thank you for the comments Keith. Not sure if I have, but it´s most appreciated. 👍🍷

Considering the age, this is lovely work. I remember doing one, on their release and being totally underwhelmed with my efforts. You have ably demonstrated what can be achieved these days. 🫡

I liked your work, so much, I have just bought a job lot of US figures, which included the Patton figure,  from that well known auction site, which are currently in the garage, sat in a bowl of dettol stripping the paint off, which I will have a go at painting to see if I can improve. Cheers

Thanks again Neil. That´s a nice haul. I bet you´ll do them great justice with your brush skills. 🌟
