Okay, good points. I agree that the face is probably the key area of a figure which needs good realism to stand out; for example making the face appear more flushed with red as opposed to one flat flesh tone. Regarding the paint scheme on the box the uniform and attachments seem fairly accurate towards colour detail. However, on the next build I shall concentrate on experimenting on with face/flesh painting in more detail with more than just one colour.they are different sizes
blondie is 1/9th, pilot is also 1/9th yuri is 1/10th. A small brush is actually a disadvantage at times, a size 1 or 0, the brush needs to be good quality thoug. With a small brush the paint may dry on the bristles before you get it near the figure (acrlyics) oils tend to be okay. your figure is very good for your first attempt. but if you want to get into figure painting you need different tones of flesh.
this 1/10th bust face has been painted in oils and has about 8/9 different flesh tones added plus some greens and blues into it as well. that's after it has been airbrushed with green and cream to see the shadows and highlights, but I have been doing this 'serioulsy'for about 18 months now.
