wow.  the skin looks really soft, very well done.  Quick with the fixative, so you don't mess it up!  The suit looks good too, I guess there's opportunity for some freehand, patterns, maybe "slimming" vertical stripes :cm

And, of course, a shoreline scenic base!

Nice base there, Matt!  looks vaguely beach-like!  I'm sure you can do better, though.  :cm

Thanks for the comments guys.  I am playing around with some epoxies last night to see if I can get her in a tide pool but it doesn't look so good. 

gi6ers I this is exactly what I pictured when I got this model in.

Your paintjob is amazing-so lifelike.  I just wish they did more female minis with the same body type.




  Am I the only one that thought of the game FARCRY upon seeing the beach scene?
