Samurai Warrior (1300)

February 28, 2020 · in Figures · · 5 Comments

I bought this 90mm (1/18 scale) metal figure from some 10+ years ago. I didn’t get around to building it as my kids took more and more of my spare time.

So, after getting back into the hobby I dusted the cobwebs of the box and gave it a go. The kit is rater complex 42 parts and many of them need to be pinned.

I probably used the wrong primer as it didn’t stick too well and I had to go back and repaint several portions of the model after the final assembly.

Painted in acrylics and oils.

Thanks for watching.

    As one can see … the delay and wait were so well worth it all Geir .

  3. Well obviously, doing incredible figures is also "like riding a bicycle." You certainly didn't lose any skills/knowledge/talent during your "time away."

    This figure is just amazing!

  4. I think good figure painting is one of the hardest skills to master in the hobby. A lot of modelers make the eyes look like Gumby or Pokey. Those bulged eyes that come from getting hit in the head by a base ball bat. Figure painting is about as close as you can get to the fine arts ...Vermeer, Rembrandt and Leonardo...
    Two thumbs up Geir
