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.....
