Even though a bit late I join the line of Antonio's fans!
I love this project and the first outcome already looks great...

Hi guys

Thanks for the feedback!

The Needlecast is done.

Some post-shading with Alclad to enhance the volumes, and then some chipping and rusting with acrylics.

And here is the final results:












































And this concludes the 1st part of my "P-38 Trilogy".


Thanks for stopping by!

Great job on everything, from the cobblestones, to the figure and the vehicle's amazing metal finish!

Too cool! And your post-shading and weathering really make the finish pop  :smiley:

Always game on Star Warsian Speeder Bikes; M1 Steel Pot could blow off, paratrooper chin strap might keep it stable going over 100 mph, goggles needed as well, patiently waiting for the Wehrmacht version.
