Guys,

I'm speed up to clean up my work bench....

This is my latest painted Mig 1/9 resin bust. A Korean Chosun dynasty admiral Lee Sun Sin(李舜臣). The detail is very good. As U can see the decoration on the helmet. and armour... The only pity is I've lost the trident on top of the helmet plum, So I replace with a scratch built one with needle and some aluminium cut out....

Lee is remembered for his numerous victories fighting the Japanese during the Japanese invasions of Korea (15921598). Among his twenty-three victories, the Battle of Myeongnyang and the Battle of Hansan Island are the most famous battles where Lee's Turtle ship (Geobukseon) claimed victorios.









Comment and critiques are welcome....
