Very nice job on a relatively obsure Aurora kit. Love the 5 o' clock shadow. This one's got a real 1960s TV Western vibe - which is appropriate, considering the model kit captilalized on the short-lived ABC television series "The Legend of Jesse James (1965-66)".

Ditto on all comments - nice work!
In fact, I think its the nicest treatment of this figure I've seen. Very nice weathering. Vast improvement over the kit's first interation as the sheriff...

Danny - great job once again. You caught the razor stubble perfect along with the shading on the base. I thought there was a rattle snake with this kit but can't remember. I might have it confused with Tonto

Great job Dan!!:thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup:. The paintwork all over is excellent! The stubble really adds a lot to the "outlaw" look and the clothing and base are spot- on.

Chris.:)

Dark is good! Excellent work - a project like this would have taken me weeks, and the base and clothing are absolutely superb.

One little quibble: the breech of the rifle, that's the 'rectangular' area above the trigger, from the barrel back to the cocking hammer, is metal, the same as the barrel, trigger and cocking hammer.
