Italeri Set 316 Part 1

For who expected some small figures, I have to dissepoint you. I made a move to, for me at least, the dark side of moddeling. Yes, I painted a 1/35 scale figure! And you know what? It was fun! :-D

What happened? Well while I was cleaning up my moddeling stuff, I found this box. And it started talking to me, make me, paint me! So that's what I did, and here you can see the first result.

The set includes 2 motorcycles, 2 drivers and 2 standing figures. Today it's one of the standing figures. New for me is also, I painted for the first time eyes on a figure. I used a technique I've seen somewhere. Firtst I painted the face brown, then the eyes with bleeched bone and a black dot. After that I painted the face with dwarf flesh and elf flesh paint. I finished it with a flesh wash. All paints used are from Games Workshop. I'm curious to hear what you think of it.

Enjoy the pictures!




I didn't attache the gun yet, because of storage reason.




I hope you like them!

    1. Thanks Gowan! Too big??? :-D

      It's different painting details on such a figure. On small figures you can hide a lot with some wash. In this scale it isn't possible.

    1. Thanks Michael! Difficulties were minor, just the skin and the eyes. It's different as the 1/72 scale.

  4. Very good reason to go in the dark side of the hobby!
    It's very nice and pleasant to paint bigger scales: I've just try with 28mm and 32mm and it's something very different than 1/72.
    you can paint details, like eyes, and test some technical ways.
    In fact I think that we can learn a lot !

    Well... the face is very good and I like the rifle too!

    (hey! David is right ! no button ! °-° )

    Peter: your B*****Y Robot Fighter is crazy!!!!!!! I can't see the code!! and can't change it!
    and it's always the same!!!!! grrrrrrrrrrrrrr !

    1. Thanks Pascal! It was very learnfull.

      About the robot fighter, I've seen to many spam passing by on other blogs, without the robot fighter, I let it on. I know some people don't post because of that, but I don't want to spent my time cleaning up my blog. Sorry for that! Strange that you always get the same code????

    1. Thanks Ray! The answer is yes! I want to try some different scales. Just looking for some sponsors for the other scales (6mm, 15mm, 28mm). The main scale stays 1/72! ;-D

    1. Bedankt Danny! Dit is maar een tussendoortje. Ik blijf wel bij de 1/72 schaal. Nog drie figuurtjes en twee motorfietsen te gaan. En dan nog wat aankleding zoeken voor een vignette. Ik ga eens kijken wat Unicorn Models te bieden heeft!

  15. There's no shame in a little healthy curiosity like that, I have done at least three sets of that scale, I think Tamiya. The trouble comes later when you try to store them in between times of looking at them, without breaking them, so all mine are lost, but you have taken preventive measures. You're all right.

    1. Thanks Pete! I did it because I don't know when I will make a vignette with him. I do the same thing with my 1/72 figures. And it keeps them away from dust! ;-)
