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.







VERY NICE!!! I'll be following with interest!

Very nice... I might contemplate this figure in the future, since I have both a Mossy and a Tiffy in 1:24...



SOMEONE, meaning the plastic model kit manufacturers, needs to produce a "PROPER" state-of-the-art Spitfire Mk.I in 1/24...

I'm a 1/48 aircraft-builder myself, when it comes to aeronautical subjects. I've been thinking about making an exception to my "rule" by getting a KINETIC 1/24 P-47D... The drawback there is that I shudder at what it would cost me in total, after buying additional PE and resin, etc "goodies", in order to bring it up to my own personal standards of model-building...

Mae west painted up last night. Also added a satin varnish to his Irvin Jacket, which was a bit worrying at first as it seemed very dark ,but over night the jacket has gone back to its original shades - phew;

Palette;

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;
