A wonderfully detailed and beautifully finished armour model can easily be let down if accompanied by a poorly painted figure. The addition of scale figures helps provide depth, weight and realism to a model yet working with figures continues to be most armour modellers' worst nightmare. This book provides tips and techniques for building, converting and painting World War II German Army Panzer crew figures, in clear step-by-step instructions. Among the topics covered are how to paint different uniforms using enamels and oils; converting and scratch-building figures; painting heads and flesh tones; and weathering clothing.
