Even more impressive, to avoid the buildup of too much paint.  Thank you for explaining.

I m painting over the previous work or improving painted parts by adding more colours, lights or shadows. No stripping. Several years ago i have damaged the figure while i tried to strip it off, so i decided to not strip the paint again.  :)

Curious if you are stripping paint job and starting over or repainting over previous work to achieve better result.

Thank you lads for the kind words  :) :) :) 


John: I thnik the deep/ dark blue is the most diffucult colour to paint. It can t be lighted up with the white colour as you will get light blue effect which is not correct, or in front of my eyes it does not look well - just to paint the pants it took me 2 hours (I had to repaint it 5x, as I did not like the final look).

Love the rendition of the blue uniform especially.  I think blue colors are difficult to pull off in 30mm.

The result was worth the time--at least from the viewer's perspective.
