Space Adventurer, 2dreamers 1/9th bust
Hello, fellow iModellers,
This is my first "real" painted figure. I've done others in the past, but always to complement another project, mostly pilots for 1/72nd or 1/48th aircraft or tank crew in 1/48th. So this is the first time in which the figure is the project itself.
Being the first, I wanted to pick something relatively simple but that looks good. This is a fantastic figure by the Czech company 2dreamers and is a 1/9 bust to commemorate the 60th anniversary of the first space orbit by Yuri Gagarin. (doesn't look much like him, but it's ok ;))
Overall, painting the figure was a great experience. I learned new techniques, I used a wet palette for the first time and I got to test the new Abteilung 502 dense acrylic line. I hope you guys like it and please go ahead and share your thoughts!.
