Before it's finished...

The guy pouring milk from his helmet was made up of bodyparts from
several different figures to get the pose I wanted. Not really my
cup of tea to perform plastic surgery on figures but what to do...

A few bits and pieces remains and I have 4 more figures to do then
it's time to call it finished and move on to a new project...

Oh, not sure if I mentioned it in my last update but the models are
from Revell (FAMO and Flak), MAC (Steyr), Frederikus Rex (Windmill)
and the figures are from Milicast, Preiser and Mantis Miniatures.

Thanks for looking!

Cheers

Sven-Åke

Thanks for sharing. I have no idea a 1/72 figure can be painted in such detailed!

Yes I guess it has some fairytale magic forest thing going

It's like you're just waiting for that famous sentence from
the childrens books, "and so they live happily ever after"

Glad you like it and see that "cozy" vibe!

I'm very happy that you like the little figure. There's people
who can paint these small figures like they were 1/35 but
unfortunately I'm not one of them It's has more to do with
luck that I manage to shake the paint onto the figure in
an acceptable way

Thanks for your comment!!!

Cheers

Very evocative, superb scene setting, Sven! The little milkman is gorgeous... Where is the windmill from?

Hi Sven

I like this dio very much, nice colors, good ideas, very impressive windmill.
I would have loved a bit more volume (more branches)for some of the trees.

Well done

Claude

PS.: I just did notice your first post and saw that this is in 1/72 scale. So i even more impressed and understand also a bit the lack of branches on the trees.
