Hi Kev,

Looking forward to seeing what you do with this one Kev I am sure every detail will be picked up and painted the exact colour and will make an excellent entry.

Thanks Trev, Tom, Alan and Mark, your comments are very much appreciated. I'll be starting this soon, just been very busy at work this week and trying to get a bit more done to my Tornado build at the moment, but it won't be too much longer before the chap from the 101st Airborne puts in an appearance!

Thanks for your interest in my diary guys. Cool ThumpUp

Hi Ian, thanks for looking in and your comment, always greatly appreciated. ThumpUp

I was looking at the Lifecolor Face paints as an option for the flesh colours but undecided as yet. I may just use my Winsor & Newton 'Alkyd' artist's oils with a matting agent. They dry in a day and are easier to blend the different tones than acrylics or I may use a combination of both?
