I'm attempting another Miniart 1/16 scale figure. link

Got a few more pieces completed for this model.

Looks like a fun project- I look forward to seeing you paint it. It sounds like you have a lot of prep work to do; more than I would expect for a display figure.

The Miniart kits are horrible. I'm only working on this one because it was a gift from my wife at Christmas. Otherwise I would avoid them.

Completed a few more steps on this figure.

The first layer of paint has been applied.

Some disappointing news about this project. It's coming apart at the seams. Literally! So I was getting ready to put the next layer of paint onto the Musketeer when I noticed that his sword arm had started to separate. As I looked around the model some more I noticed most of the seams that were filled with putty had separated and the putty was gone. I primed the figure and thought it would have sealed it and protected the joints. The only conclusion I can come up with is that solvent I was using to thin the oil paints ate away at the putty.
