Although Screaming Eagle is not finished yet I decided to begin new project - 1/35 Donkey Rider from ToRo Model

In box review of this kit is here: Donkey Rider review

Removing casting blocks was quite an easy task but some care was needed while cutting off from figure's feet.
Prior to priming all elemnt with automotive grey primer I glued arms in place and the fit was very good.
After priming I found few seam lines I missed during initial clean up.

Flesh was painted with brown sand from Vallejo and shalwar qameez with light grey from Lifecolor.

I added shadows to the rider. I will have to add some highlights in next stage:


I painted donkey with a mix of black and black brown.
