I saw the Masterbox 1/35th scale pinup girls and bought the kit, they are nice and I do plan on building and painting them some day but when they came out with the 75mm or 1/24th scale versions I started right in on some of them, so here is the Army girl with the M1 carbine so far.

I changed the shoes because she is in combat boots on the box but the figure has high heels on in the kit and i did not like that as much so had some short boots in the scrap box and on they went. the fit of the parts is really good.

HI Doug, I will be following with interest as I am doing the 1/35 version for a vignette to take to AMPS Nationals in April. Big difference between the two, no? The little version has been spending quite a bit of desperately needed time at Dr. Maxwell Bahkadablade's Auto Body and Plastic Surgery Studio in preparation for makeup. Good luck!

Real talent you got there!

I have a small question about lighting; Do you use a specific light source when painting figures? For example a fluorescent tube or light bulb or maybe some sort of special setup?

I'm just wondering as my desk lamp is casting quite a 'hard' shadow and sometimes it looks a bit different when I pose it with a different light source.

Thanks for sharing! & kind regards
Steven

Hey Steven
light is vital I like a lot of light, I have a 4 foot double florescent tube light fixture just above my desk hanging about 4 feet above. The light is large enough to get some side light and above light. The bulbs are bright light and it really helps. Ya gotta see it to paint it.
