    I agree with all, very nice work. The only thing I would do differently is to give the figures a matt clear coat, to get rid of the shine.

    Yup, I agree with Terry. Glossy clothing is not realistic unless it's leather (or kinky latex!). 1/48 is getting pretty small to do eyes on figures. I have not mastered this myself but believe that the secret is in shading the eye sockets rather than trying to get the eyballs right. I think you've done it really well.

    On the plane, I'm not sure what happened to the the sliding canopy section - seems to be missing. I might have thought the yellow recognition banding on the wing leading edage to be a little wide but if Terry didn't mention it, it's probably right.

    Welcome to the forum madpig, that’s a great little diorama my friend and as others have said, maybe tone down the gloss on the figures. Also welcome to the forum

    To be honest, I hadn't noticed the yellow I.D. bands! Yes, they should be slightly narrower along the leading edge, and the finish of the aircraft is a touch too shiny. Also, the instrument panel should be black, but, so what, it' pretty good anyway!

    Agree with the guys here, theyre right on the money... Canopy was probably removed to show the pilot in the cockpit...

    the canopy is not missing, just forgot to put it on when taking photo~:(
    thank you about the print eyes advice~

    I DID forgot something to print~
    1)the figures didnt flat, too shining~
    2)the plane didnt use the semi gross~
    3)the grass-- i just use a piece of fake grass stick on it~(that is the wrost thing)

    and thanks all guys let me understand one thing, that is my ENGLISH not good.
    MOM..........where is my dictionary??:laughing3:
