I don't know who this guy is, but the job you are doing on the figure painting is awesome. Lovin' it.

Thanks ZB, Dambusters (617) squadron leader/wing commander. Thanks for the link Paul.
Ive also got his dog, Nigger, who was the squadron mascot to do.

Done a bit more, replaced the missing buckles with stainless steel ones, still roughly blocking in the colours and started work on the base. Still got to attempt the dog.

I am very impressed with this build. I just don't think my modeling skills are good enough to model a figure like this. Super nice job.

Guy looks great...

the base is really nice ...... quite simple but effective, plaques are nice and neat.

Nigger looks a little overweight there, he wasn't that chunky a Black Lab from the photos you see,

Waiting for a finished thread on this ..... not too soon though, tease us a bit more !!

Nice deep base coat, the models not to bad for shape, position and detail is it

If it's any help the last time i did a black animal i dry brushed lightly with a mid grey then an off white, then made a wash of 50/50 matt black and navy to give that "blue-black" sheen
