German Ace
1:32 WnW figure Mike Good sculpt.
Oils
This is the 5th casting of this figure I've managed to obtain. All previous ones including that in the WnW kit were truly awful with all the details sludged up with debri in the moulds. This one too was poor but, a few hours with a scalpel and the end of a spare airbrush needle , I managed to clear up most of the face. All leather buckles still resemble 'blobs'!
Fokker E.II was from my build 18 months ago

  4. Exceptional paintwork, David @mentaldental
    Again the expressions are fantastic, you are a true master in that.
    Maybe some idea regarding the debris and the dust, could an ultrasonic bath not be helpful in this case?
