I am alway impressed by the way you manage to create your figs. When I grow up, I hope to be able to get them just as good as yours...

Hahahahaa,yes,well,when I grow up,I wanna take uber realistic pics like Timbo. It's always nice to have goals.

Here is another recent release by Rado figures. I changed him a bit again. More "bent" forward and the ammo belts therefor have to hang free. A hastily rolled poncho was also added.




I went for a more faded and dirty look for the Italian cammo overalls. By the time of this action,these kids had been living in holes for almost a month. It is a moral challenge to paint such difficult cammo patterns and then cover them with dirt,dust and mud,but well....there it is. I know from training at the NTC for weeks in the field or living in a hole at the border of Iraq how disgusting a human can get. The good news is,you all get disgusting together and so don't notice it as much! LoL

Moltograzi amico mio,
