Painting a 1/72 modern pilot

I thought I should get as much figure painting practice as I can so I decided to paint up this 1/72 pilot figure from Hasegawa to use as size comparison for my future builds.

Colors I used:

  • Lifecolor UA003 Olive Drab
  • Mig AMMO 203 Light Compass Ghost Gray
  • Vallejo Game Color 72036 Bronze Fleshtone
  • Vallejo Game Color 72043 Beasty Brown
  • Vallejo Model Air 61056 Black Grey
  • Vallejo Model Color 60815 Basic Skintone
  • Vallejo Model Color 60879 Green Brown
  • Vallejo Model Color 60885 Pastel Green
  • Vallejo Model Wash Brown
  • Vallejo Model Wash Dark Grey

I then made a clear base made out of a blister pack. The figure is glued with white glue to the base which will dry transparent.

I think I’ll try to get a 1/72 scale WW2 figure painted too. Oh and also their 1/48 counterparts. Looks like much more practise ahead.
