Modeler: Ken Schmitt
Scale: 1/35
Manufacturer:  www.acesofiron.com

A local R/C buddy got a really nice pilot bust out of resin for one of his planes. He asked me to paint it for him. Well this is way over of my pay-grade, so I contacted Ken Schmitt, a WWI Modeling List buddy who does figures. The attached photos are the result.

I mention this is because the bust is by an outfit called Aces of Iron. http://www.acesofiron.com/ They put out a series of beautiful hollow, single piece resin pilot figures in several R/C scales. This figure is 1/3 scale and about 7" tall. Their site also has a wonderful tutorial on figure painting with oils. I thought this might be of interest to some members who may not stumble across what is basically an R/C site

An interesting side note is that it took Ken 6 months to finish the figure, Had he done it sooner, the model it was intended for ended up crashing in the bay at the Albert Whitted airshow recently.....
