The white is acrylic. I painted the face with Valejo( a first for Me), and the gloves are Oils.

Very nice so far! I'm absolutely horrible at painting figures, but my wife gave me the Collishaw Sopwith Triplane for my last birthday because she thought it a neat little aeroplane (hey, it's got 3 wings!) and because it came with a figure. Guess there's no escape now painting up the Collishaw figure when I start the Tripe...

Thanks for your comment! As for figures I am far from good but I do try  ::) I am sure you will come up with an acceptable Collishaw!

I've been out of town for a few days, so I'm just now seeing this.  You're back in the saddle and already a good start!

Rick, I really like the sculpting and your painting of that figure!
It telling a small story already.

Cheers,

Wikipedia says: A model is a simplified representation of reality.
So I create downscaled originals.

Thanks Frank! I did a bit of work on the wood effect by over spraying with a mix of Tamiya Clear Orange and Clear Yellow. As for the figure I got as far as painting the Sidcot suit and decided I could do BETTER!  So I have stripped the figure and will re paint soon  :-[

Sidcot after painting. I did NOT like the results. My Philosophy for My Models now is DO NOT Accept things that I know I can do BETTER!

The interior of the Camel looks very good Rick. I have to write that your figure already looks better than anything that I would have painted....!
