Adolph Hitler

This is a 90mm metal figure of Adolph Hitler prior to WWII. He's wearing the uniform of the Sturmabteilung (SA). The time is 1934 and could be in Berlin when he gave his "night of the long knives" speech.
The casting is just fantastic. Parts fit well and require minimum cleanup. This is the second in the line (Third Reich) from Andrea I painted. Uniform color was a mix of Gold/Ochre, Burnt Sienna and White. Burnt Umber was used for the shadows and White for the highlights. All done over an acrylic base. The microphone and stand were painted in a Bronze and silver color rather than all silver. I thought this added some interest to the overall presentation.
