SHOWCASE

It was a big surprise for me when Metal Modeles released “Lieutenant Columbo”, because he is one of my favorite detectives. So, I decided to paint this 54mm figure.
At first glance it seems very easy to paint this figure, after I realized that it is very difficult to paint a living person as a figure.
I need to collect photos of Peter Falk, his face, the color of his clothes, his coat, etc.
After painting his face, the hardest part was Columbus’ dress. I try to copy the colors, I think I hit the color.
This project took 6 weekends to complete. I enjoyed painting my favorite detective figure.
