Sir Edmond Hillary

This is a figure of Andrea’s Sir Edmond Hillary.


I used a combination of Enamels and Acrylics to pain him. Testors Model Masters Flesh tones were used for the skin. The uniform was painted with Humbrol RAF Blue.


Four different Vallejo Acrylics took care of his equipment: Olive Green for the backpack, Yellow Tan and Red for the bedroll, and Aluminum for the frame.


Hudson & Allen supplied the snow for the mountain.
