I bought this chap off eBay , a nice figure with some paint chipping. I want to keep as much of the original character as possible so I'm planning to only touch up he damaged paint work . Now amongst serious figure collectors this is a controversial subject but seeing I'm only using him on the tabletop I'm not to fussed ! . I've mounted him on a base so he doesn't keep falling over .
He's a bit of a character , rather a florid face - long service in foreign climes or too much port ? , I'm patching up the hole in his hat but not touching the face and I want to keep that marvelous orangey red tunic colour that contemporary figures have .
The finished model with the paint 'improved , General Pettygrew is ready for service in the 'Red' Army.
