A Jean Hoeffler Indian painted for a friend!


Because he sended me some very nice painted figures, I couldn't resist painting Detlef Heerbrand also a figure. So here you can see the result and at this moment the figure is already at his new home.



Here you can see whet he sended me.


Thanks for watching!

Elastolin Indian 6808 (Copy)

Another figure that I gave a new colorful live. I have tried to give him the same colors in the Elastolin catalogue. This is again a far west copy made in the far east! As always painted with acrylic colors. I hope you like him.






This is how he looked unpainted. Big difference don't you think?



A closer look.

Star Wars Boba Fett

With this figure I came out of my comfort zone. It's my first science fiction figure I ever painted. The figure is a 3D printed figure and it is 54 mm high (scale 1/32). There were some edges that were not easy to reach for painting but I think I had the most parts covered.

The figure is a gift for my youngest son who collects all figures of Boba Fett he can get. It was ment to be a Christmas gift but I couldn't finish the figure in time. But finaly I managed to get it done. And here you can see the result.








I hope you like him!

Airfix WW2 US Infantry

First post of the year, so I wish everyone a very good and healthy year. And lots of modelling fun of course! 

These Airfix figures are produced in 2009-2016 (http://www.airfix132.de/hornby_2009.html) and are made of hard plastic and not in soft plastic like the older ones. After a good wash I painted them with acrylic paints. Seven poses, but there seems to be another officer pose. I made a base for the figure with the bazooka with a plastic sheet.





I hope you like them and so I'm started in this year. Here is the box art and pictures of the unpainted figures.

Hong Kong Cowboy

Just a single figure I painted in between other figures. It is a Hong Kong copy but I don't know from what brand. He looks a bit as the Airfix one but he is different. Scale is 1/32 and is painted with acrylic paints.





I hope you like him.

Esci Set 238 Muslim Warriors

I painted some of these figures in the past in red and white. Now I wanted to paint them in black and blue to get some variation in the troops. For those who want to know, the figures are painted black and then get a drybrush with grey paint. You can add different layers of drybrush with every next time a lighter grey to get more depth. Figures are original Esci in scale 1/72. Painted with acrylic paints.






I hope you like them!

Elastolin Cowboy 6985 (Copy)

Here is a copy of an Elastolin Cowboy that I painted. The figure reminds me on Gary Cooper in the movie "High Noon". The Elastolin figures were figures I could only see behind glass in the toyshop when I was young. They were much to expensive for one figure, and I don't know what people pay for this kind of figures this day, but I don't think it has changed.

Anyhow it was fun painting this figure. The figure is a bit bigger as 54 mm but not that much that wouldn't go together with my other 54 mm figures. And as Always painted with acrylic paint. I hope you like him. 





Here you can see the original figure in a picture of a catalogue. I have some more of these figures, copies of course, and one day I will paint them.

And of course I couldn't resist to make a black and white picture!
