Hi guys! Here I share with you my first attempt with a 1/6 bust that I grab from Last Cavalry at Ipms Nationals (thanks Dave!) its the Baron Manfred Von Richthofen, or the Red Baron!

 

I started cleaning the figure with soap to remove all the molding grease, then after dry, a coat of tamiya thin primer was given.

 

From there I use Vallejo colors for the base color. A few weeks later I decided to stop ignoring it and try to paint a face!, 1 and half hour later the result. (Still missing eyebrows, eyelashes omitted by mistake. :smiley24: ) eyes are not wonderful, but for a first time I guess they are ok.

Next day in my lunch time I started to work the red color in the hat and uniform. Then a retouch during the night.

same test with the body, colors are building up, still need to seal it to give a warm effect to the colors using oils.
