This figure was part of a set of infantry. Generally these lower quality plastic figures are used for dioramas with tanks and stuff, but I wanted to build a single one just to mess around with some painting techniques. I added little bits such as straps and the tree stump with epoxy putty. I think I was still using enamels to brush paint back in these days..
