Flesh colours mixed from Vallejo white, red, green and yellow

Looks good Casper, a drop of a clear gloss or PVA should make the sight lenses look a little better

Hi Casp,

I know that you won't do it on this model but (sorry, I'm just feeling rather evil today :oops: :oops: :oops: ).

But........... If you had larger model, and wanted this to appear to go into a big muddy "puddle" and have it full face on the Mutt and then on the sides of it, never mind the GI, How would you attack it? :) :) :)

The driver is coming on nicely Casper. Perhaps a dark flesh coloured wash on the face and hands might make the shadows look darker ? The uniform is looking very good.
Cheers

How about, as he's a "puddled" GI/ splashed with mud, a bit of a very dry brush with some brown paint ? :)

Hi Paul
I have added some more mud and dirty water to finish the mutt off. I was going to add some ballast to the bonnet but the clay i was going to use to make some bags has gone hard over time :lol: :roll:
I did add a little more flesh detail and dirt to the figure but i still think he looks a little pink :lol:
anyway here are the last couple of pics
thanks for looking :) casp

Thanks Mark ;) :)
Its a shame all the weathering done earlier has mostly been covered with dirt but it did look a little clean
I just gave up on the flesh tones and left the guy with a pinkish grin :)

Thanks Mark :)
The parts fit really well to be honest but the wheels touched the arches so the extra lift makes it look better.
Its a good job i checked while the glue was still soft so i could prize the area apart to push the extra rods in.
The wheels are really nice but look better with the holes drilled out with a 1.25mm drill in a pin vice

Great idea to drill the wheels, just done it to my Airfix 1 / 24 FW 190, looks a million times better. K awarded. :clap:

For something that takes a few minutes its well worth doing.
I remember BA mentioning it to Peter about drilling out the wheels on his amazing long nose Jaguar
