This is the Seil Models figure of Crown Prince Wilhelm of Prussia in 1916. All finished bar his walking stick. Painted in oils over acrylics.

All comments welcome. Sorry for the bad photography.

Hi Ross,

Nice job all round, leather work looks great, especially like how you've done the boots.

All the best

Hey Ross,

Excellent work. Like everyone else, I really like your leather work on this one!!

But... how on earth did you get that yellow trouser piping to flow so convincingly?!? Excellent!

Rudi

p.s. don't forget to enter your figure into the SFOTM for May.... you could stand a chance of winning a 54mm figgie from Seil Models

Cheers for the positive comments chaps. It is a great figure to paint and would recommend it to anyone. Rudi there is only one words when it comes to painting anything like piping and that is 'patience'. Also a steady hand and a good brush helps
