  1. Another nonship project...this time a 54mm French grenadier from the Napoleonic period. Found this guy diggin' around in the archives. no telling how long I've had the kit... must be quite a while since I only paid 79 cent for it!! I've been determined to get my figure painting skill back to where they used to be thirty some years ago, so this was the perfect subject to start with, but first I picked up a couple tools to help. A lighted magnifier and a rechargeable hi intensity led light Found the flag online and printed it off, the "dirt" is painted cat litter, the base is a piece of cherry oiled and urethaned, the figure was done with a mix of oils and acrylics weathered with pastel powders sealed with hairspray. Pics follow
  2. It always takes me longer to weather then anything else, I usually break it down to about 9-10 separate steps
  3. Ya its gonna be "set" into the landscape of the base...still gotta finish the little dudes
  4. Thx D, actually that’s the best part of military modeling, least IMO
  5. Shots of the completed figure mounted up Thanks for all the likes
  6. Just adding a couple shots of the tank commander...a modified Tamiya figure done with artist oils, I'm not as good with figure as I used to be...hands shake a little more and can't focus the peepers the way I used to, sucks being vintage!! Still a little touch up required.
