    Spent an enjoyable hour (or three) last night painting the Dartmoor models WWII British Mp - http://www.dartmoormilitarymodels.com/military.html he is going on my Sturmtiger dio. Against the current trend of resin for everything, he is made from good old white metal.
    Figure comes in 5 pieces; head body and legs are cast as one piece, along with two arms and a pistol holster. Only needs minor clean up before the arms can be attached, leaves a very tiny gap, easily plugged with superglue.

    His face has been painted with Ammo of Mig Flesh Tones, uniform with (all Vallejo Acrylics) British Uniform, black for boots, white for gaiters (?) and belt and Red for peaked cap. Now needs some shadows and highlights adding to the uniform, very minimal shading on the belt and a bit more on the gaiters and boots.

    And viewed at 'full size' closer to the actual size of the figure;
