Bazooka Joe = done

The actual title for this piece is "david beats goliath".
The base was finished off with some drybrushing and pigment dusting. Also found a nice 1/48 scale photoetch barbed wire set from Eduard which seems to work for 1/72 and just nicely rounds off the base.
I'm quite happy to finish this in a reltively short amount of time. The final result was close to what I originally envisioned and I hope you all enjoyed it.

Bazooka Joe 5 almost there

The weekend proved to be as if not more hectic than the weekday. Lucky to have managed to do 95% of the painting done in 2 sittings, I guess that's the beauty of 1/72 scale figure modelling.
I used vallejo acrylics, they're pretty good for a quick sit n paint. And clean ups are a breeze.
Next step would be to spray a dullcote, mount on the base and dirty up his boots to sit with the environment. As usual the week ahead is gonna be hectic and I foresee the weekend will be as well. Fingers crossed I can get him finished.
