Welcome back to the inconsistent and sporadic build.

I have since primed the palm tree parts and found a source to get palm frond easier from Passion Models. I got to see their range of products at the recent Penang Model Show. Haven't gotten round to ordering yet but will KIV for further projects in future.

Here are the primed parts...

The palms close up...

I had to flatten it out to get a better coverage of the spray...

The trunks...the one on the left was dry brushed with light tan shades as a trial. The cut ends got a dab of red rust as the shade was similar to coconut trunks when freshly cut. After prolonged airing under the sun and elements the ends turned dark brown almost ash black.

While this cures I head on back to my Scots Grey figure.teeth 2

Cheers,

Richard

Hi Richard

Dio base looks very nice. Your palm trees have worked very well.

Ha...next year has come and is going to end and I'm still at it.face 20

While at the recent event, to kill time I brought along the figures to paint. I took about half an hour each these faces...

They're still on the shiny side. Gave them sun burnt and sweaty skin tones. The blending still needs work.

The recent flurry of figures on the forum has gotten me started so I guess this dio has been kicked into life.

Cheers,

Richard

Hi John R, appreciate the compliment very much. Every new figure is approached with mixed results and has steadily improved I think.teeth 2
