Item description for PAINTING AND FINISHING MILITARY FIGURES by Rob Henden...
Rob Henden, internationally respected modeler, shows how to choose, assemble and paint military figures. In super close-up detail we learn the skills necessary to achieve the completely realistic results that led to the creation of his Gold Medal winning SS Fallschirmjager figure. This program takes us from research, kit choice and tools required through cleaning of castings, filling and finishing assembly to priming, brush and airbrush painting and eventually to appropriate base-work. He looks in detail at texturing, painting flesh-tones, facial features, clothing, weapons and equipment, wood grain, leather, dry brushing, metals and much much more. A highly detailed menu lists each topic for easy and immediate navigation whilst the DVD pause facility allows you to stop the action at any time to appreciate in close detail each step and the finished astonishing models.

Reviews - What do customers think about PAINTING AND FINISHING MILITARY FIGURES?
Nice. But, had hoped for more. Mar 11, 2008
Pros: Excellent large scale figure tutorial. Easy to follow instructions with several helpful tips (check out the extras section). I really liked the host - he was very personable and very talented. You could tell he enjoys what he does.
Cons: DVD concentrated on a single scale (1/9) and a single subject(Fallschirmjäger) and a single medium (acrylic). It would have been nice to see a greater variety of scale and technique.
DVD will come in handy for my 1/16 Tamiya WWII German Elite Infantryman.
