Handy having your own Blue Roan Cocker Spaniel (Louis) for reference;



So painted up the 1/24th version;






'Actual size'



In between adding the various layers of blacks/greys/whites onto 'Louis' I also got on with the pilots '1939 pattern flying boots';










Where's Your Head At? (Basement Jaxx)



Need a coat of matt varnish as does louis, and the boots need some light dirt added to them.

Elan13's superb 75mm resin figure of a WWII RAF pilot, with his obligitary dog;

Box art;


Superb casting;







First up was his Irvin leather flying jacket, painted with a mix of various highlight and shadow washes from the AK leather set;









Next up was his RAF uniform, again painted in its base colour then washes of highlights and shadows, with a finishing glaze/wash of the original colour and a final coat of Ak interactive ultra matt varnish;
