The only thing is the skin tones painting with Army Painters " Tanned Flesh" and washed with the Army Painter " Flesh Wash". I could hold on my self and managed to finish two of them as a sample of the different colours and schemes. I can say that I'm happy with the first results..

Hi everyone! A different topic for this week. Different era and scale. Been a long time since I got these figures and always had them in mind since I want to repaint them for my collection..
So, here we have a small collection of vintage "Cherilea" 60mm ( about 1:30 scale) dated back in late 50s or early 60s. I couldn't find exact date of production ,so, if anyone has additional info please add them to the comments.
Cherilea was an English company founded in 1946 by W. Cherrington and John Leaver . They where both former designers in the famous JoHilCo company.They produced in hollow-cast lead until 1955 when they began doing plastic figures. The big 60mm figures was their asset in the 60s.
So , at first the paint remains should be cleaned up and also to cut the mold lines. These figures was factory painted but this was one of the weak points of Cherilea. Many collectors complained for the easy paint loss of these figures. As a result, all the figures that survived until our times are almost unpainted. So the cleaning started...
This is the average condition of each figure. Some have more or less paint
