Markus Antonius I see your figures have the apperance of real persons, yet they don't seem to have a complicated paintjob on the clothes... i am confused!

Craig Moroz Thanks Markus. Hope you like them. Figures are my nemesis - I do them because I need to. Not because I like to. My process: Uniform painted with enamels. Face with acrylics. Body is undercoated with Gunze Black 1500 Primer in spray "rattle" can, while that is still wet I mist Gunze white 1500 primer from the top - the wet on wet effect gives a nice graduation as a base for the real colours. I then mix up three versions of the uniform colour. The darkest colour is brush painted into the deepest creases or where shadow would really occur. The second darkest is then airbrushed from below the figure. The airbrush is quickly cleaned and then the lightest airbrushed from above the figure. Again, wet on wet application means you get a blended effect. Details are painted. Once dry there is a coat of Gunze flat sprayed on (yep just from a rattle can again!).Once dry, I weather the figure in a similar way to the vehicle. Filters carefully applied. Faces - gah....I normally run five or six at a time and then pick the best one to go onto the figure. Many of my figures end up wearing red leather or black leather gloves. I am still learning. Markus, I hope that assists.

Craig Moroz Am declaring this one done. Model Kasten tracks on. 87 links per side at 8 parts per link equals 1392 parts just for the tracks!!!! Have included the photo that served as inspiration for this model.

Markus Antonius Thank you Craig, it is a method that turns out to be effective. I will try that technique on a future project!
