You are fast. But a very nice paintjob as well. From which manufacturer is the other figure?

Thank you my friends.
@MABO
It is from Amati. In a quick search I found this:http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Amati-Fittings-Crew-Figures-8005-03-Cast-Metal-Sailor-25mm-/322290825535

The Amati one is supposed to be 25mm as far as I can see.
But they fit well together.
Did Jaques sculpt a big guy or did Amati produce a small one?

Wonderful job you did, Kostis. :love: :love: :notworthy: :notworthy: :notworthy:

As for the size of the figure, is size 1/72 Zvezda. :mrgreen:

The historians say that Blackbeard was a big man. :-D :-D :-D

Two figure, a few bits, right base and again a work from a Master. :yeah:

I also used in "Cross the finish line" one Amati figure. Different pose.
Get it under the label Artesania Latina. The material is a quite strong metal.
For the very first time I need a hand drill to burr a figure!
So from mine side it is more impressive whom high level you have reached with this Amati/ Artesania Latina figure.

Thank you once again Jaques. :notworthy: :-D
Thank you for your comments Erik. My small tip is that I usually make my own resin copies. So I preserve the prototype and I work with easy material. ;-) :-D

Very nice vignette Kostis, like a lot the way in wich you paint the skin. Not only in teh faces, the armas, hands and chest of the firgures are really very good. :yeah:
And the sculpting work form Jaques is excellent.
