Hey all,

Here`s a few shots of my last project just completed - Ultracast`s 54mm IJN pilot, sculpted by Mike Good and painted in oils and acrylics. Hope you like, and please excuse the poor focus - an iPhone is no Hasselblad ...

As always, critiques and advice are appreciated.

Excellent job - the photos are good also, despite the limitations of an I-phone type camera....the shading/highlighting are well done, as is the definition between the various articles of clothing, webbing, etc. I haven't painted ANMYTHING in 54,mm in a VERY long time - my only 54mm pilot figure was an old Squadron/Imrie-Risley figure of a Viet-Nam era Mig Pilot - way back in the mid/late 70s.Keep up the great work!!!

Very nice. The detail on the figure looks superb ... and your painting really makes the most of this. Id be tempted to buy this after seeing how your turned out!
