    Another Oldie from the Totally Oils Era What a Face

    A Pegaso conversion of one of their three European Knights set, sculpted by Pietro Balloni some 10yrs ago or so Suspect his two cousins (the figure's cousins cheers ) will be posted soon by William as they are being painted by both William and Jeremy, as Hospitallers for the Junior Section in Folkestone this year Cool

    It got me a HC in Glasgow2000 (Open Class) and a C in EuroMilitaire 2000 (Class 4)
    As I said it's a small conversion where I substituted the helmet as per kit with a Pegaso Landsknect Pikeman's head (again from a trio of figures) kindly donated by Noel Laughing I just gave him some hair and a beard and splashed the paint Twisted Evil

    Another brilliant masterpiece, i love your work and this is a brilliant idea to show these old pieces again. Apart from remembering them again, i would not have seen some of them and the pics are great, the detail sticks out. I really like the work with yellow. Great stuff!!!

    hi Ray, i found the message, kemm int kiesah man, i was not in the least offended. i am using it for clear parts. There has been widespread use of it abroad and this by great modellers. Somehow it works wonders on clear parts. It makes them even clearer and when you have to sand them, it restores the perfect clear finish and removes the minute scars. I was wondering what all the hype was about but it actually does work. i never use it as a finish but some very good modellers do and they get brilliant results. It has self levelling properties and does not effect certain finishes like other varnishes do. for example when i used it over the metallizer paints, they retained their natural metal quality. So it does have some good points.
