Humbrol paints have been used exclusively (except Lemon Yellow - Tamiya - for Prussian trousers).
Have a look at my tips on face painting to see how I
was done using natural light with Fuji 35 mm colour negative film, taken with a Pentax MX, using a Tamron 28-85mm zoom lens. The photographs were scanned using a UMAX Astra 610S scanner, with further image processing using Paintshop Pro.
I have now taken on some repairs of old broken toy soldiers that I found in a military antique shop.
They were Britains 2nd Grade painted series, 2 had broken legs, but the parts were there. Someone had attempted to paint them , so as their originality was destroyed, I took up the task of restoration. This involved pinning the broken legs, making a hoof for one horse, then the painting.
