Model Cellar Manfred von Richthofen 1/32 scale.
« on: March 24, 2022, 07:15:39 AM »
I picked this Model Cellar resin figure up a while ago, intending it to pair with the Encor (Roden) Albatros D.II I'd built back in 2019. I finally got a chance to paint it up and pose the two together as in the photos taken of MvR back in 1916. Painted with Vallejo acrylics.
Cheers,
Gary

Thanks for that. The sculpt by Mike Good is amazing in realism and detail, and the fit of the figure's parts is second to none.
Cheers,
Gary

Amazing work! I am in awe of you guys who can paint figures. It's something i've tried but never really been able to get the hang of.

Great stuff!

Gary, that is a beautiful job you've done on that figure. The Albie is gorgeous too.  I'm envious of your skills.
