Re: People figures
- Hi Don,
You're wright. And I will certainly paint some of Preiser unpainted
But painting about 100 Z Scale figures with my -7,5 and -8 glasses
and also having to bend some arms, legs etc. will at least equal the
effort of the monks who illustrated books in the middle ages (we call
that monk work in the Netherlands. In the US, how striking, donkey
work). And they had all day for this.
