By adding a touch of the Airfix undercoat acrylic grey (it was the only thing to hand) to the Airfix starter kit (33) acrylic matte black I daubed up the boots and black straps. The strap work has to be done with a steady hand. Not hard work but it spanned over two days (see below):
Group Shot 1: A bit shadowy
Group Shot 2: In slightly better light
Still going to plan aka the original 2009 Painting Guide.
