Down in the Goods yard it's time for a chin wag at Moonan Flats
NOT my Official Entry however I was wandering past the station halt down the line from Lord St Junction and saw this little scene. Pandora wearing her new red dress, has always felt quite embarrassed about the size of her box. No one seems to be paying much attention to it today though.
Any one recognise this Guy getting some detail shots of this S truck must be a railway modeller
There's a loaded question!!
Or an accident investigator - but he is wearing the wrong gear!!!!!!!!
On a positive note, at least he doesn't need a camera stand as he could use his belly to rest the camera on for those long exposure photos.

Another non entry. This is a 1/24 scale resin pilot pictured in front of the Mustang.
More 1/24 figures
Top stuff there Steve the larger scale really is impressive and your finishing of the figures is as well
The last few are real stand outs
Very impressive. So realistic.
Thanks Chris and Toto for your comments.
The larger scale is definitely easier to paint but the technique is the same on the smaller scale, it just requires a finer brush and a good magnifying glass.
To get the shadows and crease lines looking good. I've found that by using the same colour progressively tinted with black to make it darker gives a good result.
The flesh tones are the most realistic I've seen. Absolutely spot on.
I'll be coming to you when I build my 1/35 scale tanks very very impressive
Those flesh tones are all thanks to the Vallejo paint faces set.
There are also a lot of very good tutorials on line, and being water based paint, if you mess it up or just don't like it you simply wash it off and start again.
The key to the Vallejo paints seems to be a very good primer.
