      He’s an ugly man but a good looking figure model. I like the frame idea and him popping out of it.

      I’ve been away for awhile but I,m back. Here are some shots of my latest piece. It’s a 1/10th scale German Panzer Sgt. I did the figure using leftover sprue, melted and shaped. It’s painted in oils, but painting not a strong suite for. Hope you enjoy would like to here any comments
