The captain was completed as soon as I had painted the Reichseagle onto the top front of the hat. I didn't go for the stubble after all. As a finishing touch I went over the whole guy with Vallejo's satin varnish and then, after a decent curing time I did the binocular lenses and some splash-like surfaces "beaming" from above with gloss varnish. The result was pretty neat.
Lastly I took a few silly photos of the cap'n on his command tower, observing the seas. The tallness of the edges managed to surprise, as you could see surprisingly little of the guy.
