Looking good!

Good to see those Grenadiers keep their boots polished! Figure painting is definitely a slowly acquired art for most of us Rui S. Keep up the good work!

Well it is the only way to keep their feet dry...

Thx a lot for your suport mates, always very much apreciated.
@Bigglesof266, You are completly right. I know its a very very dificult and subtle & time consuming art, at least for me.
I'm trying new tecnics this time with acrilics, instead of oils, but I'm never satisfied. So dificult.
At least I'm satisfied I've given a "primer" base coat and a flesh with tamiya and let it dry for a week. Like so, I'm not having the problem that I use to have when painting whit oils, peeling the base paint up to the bare plastic.
Also this time to avoid that, I've washed all the figures with soap before base coat.
Now; they look like the SS securit guard on parade hehehe, but it will change…
@Olivier, Yes winter is coming ;)

@Peter, I wrote "TEST" because I reactivated this thread to do a test with Tim, about the photos rotation feature.
Two photos in this album had been rotated and the thumbnails were missing. A old existing & anoying bug, fixed by Tim right away that day.
Didn't reply to you before because I didn't want to pull up the thread again.

@ Cesare, Thank you for your kind comment. I'm glad you like this one. Always apreciated.

I've got the older version of this kit molded in the dark gray and it's a tough one to work with; congrats for doing a stellar job, especially with those rather difficult and sometimes strangely posed figures of theirs. (I'm thinking of the Italeri Schwimmwagen with the officer holding his elbow up over his head LOL).

Thx a lot Al, much apreciatted and I'm really glad you like it.
I really liked all the work needed to make the kit and figures something decente. the result always serves as an incentive.
I'm leaving my best kits for when I have more experience. ;)
