My first attempt of a 1/9th scale bust , work in progress
« on: October 09, 2017, 01:27:03 PM »
This is my first attempt at large scale figure painting and the first piece of scale modelling for what seems like eons !!

This is a" Young Minature " bust representing a USAAF bomber crewman .
Currently a work in progress but its getting there !
