Okay, I'm impressed. Very impressed. It all looks exactly like it should. My favorite part is definitely the beard!  [smile]  Looks like me without my glasses on lol.

Thank you Mike.

Out of all the projects I have to finish, this was the one I really wanted to complete.
I've done my best with this, having always wanted to do a larger scale, and I'm happy with the result. That beard has about 5 different colours in it, depending on the light you can see brown, red, sand, black, but above all the grey/white.

This is, without doubt, my swan song, and it pleases me that you like the result.

Again, thank you.

OK--you killed a guy, pressure injected him with a polymer, and put him on a base. WOW. I agree about the hair, but also like the eyes. I can see what appears to be a tiny bit of moisture in his eyes--gloss/future?? outstanding!!

I never thought about doing it that way, might give...nah! Bit messy!

The eyes...It's the first thing you look at, facial recognition. ..but once there is no visible threat you go back to the eyes.

Thanks for your comments Ted....I used a products that is made by Citadel called 'ardcoat and is an Acrylic high gloss. I lost track as to how many coats i painted on the eyes. A lot of painters use the white dot principle, but I prefer to use varnishes as if they are a paint, so the high gloss will always refect the light source you have to show the model off. If there's no light, then no reflection.

I'm so glad that the model is liked, i wanted to do something special. When i look in the eyes in different light sources i can't help to wonder what he is thinking about.

Thank you.

oh, and Mike they were offering me rediculous prices, which just about covered the purchase of the model kit.
