Comments: I bought this kit for my Father-In -Law for his birthday with the intent to build a diorama for his Mining Club's County Fair Booth. This was a full Homer gift (Ref.) with me building & painting the figure. The final diorama went over big with everyone, and I learned a great deal about figure painting & diorama building. I still have a lot of work to do on diorama for the 2013 County Fair, including adding water effects & a Plexiglas cover.
Progress: Several figures completed and added to diorama. Primed in white with Tamiya & Rust-Oleum Primer for comparison reasons. Tamiya is far better primer, will never use Rust-Oleum on detail figures again
