Nice! Makes me want to paint mine!
they are a lot of fun...and if you screw it up mr. color thinner will whip it right off and give it another go

This is great, I love it. Painting figures is an art and you have it down pat. I can't say enough good things about this. And its a Marine also.
thank you frank...your stuff has been amazing...i was looking at the cloth on the cord convertible...wow

Great figure Bob with excellent painting. Do you use oil paints for the hands and face?
AL HOFFMAN said on August 1, 2013
You are a braver man than me Charlie Brown. Never have attempted a figure. At my age it would take me a long time to get to the level you are at. What paint did you use.
thank you very much al...testors model master

The pilot dissatisfied with something))) Great painting!
You could just darken the glasses (Smoke of Tamiya), or make glass from transparent plastic - the scale allows.
maxim...some of them had clear lens'...but amber would look kind of nice...i did use a clear gloss future floor polish and aqua gloss...maybe a drop of epoxy is in order...i don't have to tell you your probably the finest modeler on this site

Nice Work Bob, very nice and I like the figure too. It looks to be better sculpted than most Verlinden figures.
bob mack said on August 3, 2013
thank you walt...i think the boots are a little funky...they look backwards but not...they were numbered and didn't Even work reversed
Mike Maynard said on August 3, 2013
Very realistic finish, I stink at painting figures, you got the "touch"...
thank you mike...talk about the touch...you are a fantastic modeler and of esoteric subjects to boot

I've sent you a PM concerning this figure.
Excellent work, congratulations!
Anyway, and just in case Bob is no longer an active member of the Forum (after all this topic dates from 2013), can anyone else let me know the exact color of the uniform?
I guess it's either Khaki, or Khaki Tan, which would be a very different color from the kind of greenish color used by Verlinden on the pic on the original box for this figure.
As for the helmet, I've read somewhere that they could be either Khaki, or Brown Leather. I've used Brown Leather for another Verlinden 120mm I assembled and painted many years ago, but that pilot was on the European theatre, not on the Pacific, as a member of the Memphis Belle crew.
As for the Mae West, I know they were yellow, but if using Humbrol enamel paints, which yellow should I use? There are plenty of different yellows on Humbrol paints.
