I saw this on the Putty & Paint website earlier today- I was gobsmacked how realistic it was. This is easily the finest, most realistic painting of multi-cam I’ve ever seen. Not only that but you’ve also painted the other parts to an almost photo-realistic quality- the detail even on the gloves is stunning. Plus- the face expression just matches the pose so well. I saw several pictures on the other site- I think other modeller’s would appreciate seeing some more posted here if you can.

I agree 100% Karl. This is a stunning figure beautifully painted in every respect. The eyes look so real as does the uniform and equipment. Amazing

That is a very photorealistic figure and I would not have thought “going dark” would be an excellent way to paint Multicam. You did a marvelous job! :grinning:

Do you have more photos to show?

Welcome to the forum. That’s one very fine introduction, sir. One of the best figures I’ve seen, period.

The additional photos look incredible and the facial skintones appear so realistic that I am stunned. The eyes have that “thousand miles away stare” that draws attention to them.

The subtle use of highlighting, bordering, and shadows are just perfect. It is indeed one of the best 1/16 US SOF modern figures that I have ever seen painted.

I look forward to your other future builds. Please post them on Armorama when they are completed. :smile:

And to imagine this is a 1/16 scale (120mm tall) figure is just stunning! :grinning:

It looks more like one of those 1/6 dolls…much larger in scale the way you painted it. :+1:

Life like realism, impressive work, Huy! Outstanding work. Was the flesh work done in acrylics, or oils? Lastly, that camo pattern looks tedious, how was it?

Yeah, those eyes! Spectacular paint on this figure!
