Tommy, that is one superb figure. The painting of the flesh, indeed the whole model, is the best figure painting I've seen.

Very well done.

Thanks you very much guys! I'm glad that you liked the figure.

saguy,

The figure is almost 10cm from head to toe.

phalinmegob,

The base is made of white glue and very fine sand, on that I put some bit and pieces of wood, dried pieces of plants and such. All is stuff that I have found outside.

I have also used pieces of fresh plants, but I have dried them in my microwave to remove all moisture and to kill all small bugs before painting.

I am very impressed with this build Tommy.

All the fittings for the Katana are correct right down to the fittings on the Saya.

Nipon-to's are my thing i have spent many happy hours refurbashing the real thing.

I want this kit.

John.
