Hi everyone people,
this is my entry for the Contest , its a Japanese Fighter Pilot of the Imperial Navy in 1/35 scale . The figure its cast in resin and no major fixes were needed during building. Its a very nice figure well detailed but unfortunately i cant recall the manufacturer , im sorry.
It has been painted in acrylics and oils , some pigments for weathering the lower part . Detailing paint has been the most funny part .... im sorry for the low quality of the pics but right now i cant do better with my actual " gear " .
Thanks a lot for watching.
Regards and have fun...!
Alex.
