Revell 02558 Confederate Sharpshooter

Something quick in between. Holliday is coming near and I want to do some posts before I'll go. Am I the only the only one that when he sees a figure, he gets the feeling that he has to paint it. Well with this figure I had that feeling so I painted him.

It's a figure from the Revell Confederate Infantry set and you can see the review here. You will see that this set is a reissue from the old Accurate set.

He had some nasty mold lines, but I managed to remove almost all of them. He painted up very nice, so more will follow.

Enjoy the pictures!


I hope you like him!

  4. Nice painting.
    I hate mold lines!!!!
    maybe accurate did well and sold the molds to revell just as they were starting to get worn out.

  7. No you're not the only one who sees a figure and has an uncontrollable desire to paint it. I just bought a figure from Degra that seemed to speak to me and I just had to have him.

    There's a nobility to your figures stance and you've brought that trait out in your painting. Well done!!

    2. I second Anne!
      you're normal!
      if you know someone who never paint a figure just because he love it, THAT is not normal!

      I don't know why I've missed this post!
      Very very good painting work, and a lovely figure, that's sure!

  10. Brother Pete!

    What can I say? Can't really pinpoint but your work just got a certain charm to them. As you know Jen and I are fans of yours ever since we've seen your work.

    Recently we went to the Texas state capital and saw alot of painting were men are in such uniform. Thank you for reminding us the happy times.

    Warm regards to you and your family,

    J&B
