    This is Knight Models' 70mm Sir Alec Guinness, in all his glory as Obi Wan Kenobi from Star Wars IV "A New Hope"

    White metal kit in the usual Knight Models' "glory & hell" casting Sad

    Likeness is spot on, but overall sculpting & casting is a bit crude with poor fitting of hands to belt & light sabre Evil or Very Mad

    Nothing which could not be "tuned" with some patience & now this dude gets inline on the painting track Twisted Evil

    Love this figure Ray, how about setting him on a very shiny surface, the inside of a spaceship, that would really be different to the usual groundwork.

    Bri, you have a valid point as yes he was inside spaceships & spacestations, however this pic dictated otherwise, apart that the uneven boots' soles vis a vis the cappa's hem being slightly longer, also cried for Tattoonie terrain Twisted Evil

    Doc Roe, I opted for another Jedi so to balance between the Siths, since I only have two i.e. Darth Vader & Count Dooku, against the remaining Jedi's who are Master Mace Windu & a younger Obi Wan Kenobi Laughing

    Also, he was the least complex to construct from all of them so that was another plus Twisted Evil

    Photo shoot & adjusting with Smart Photo Editor re colours & saturation & the BLOODY rest  Evil or Very Mad 

    So colour hue varies a BIT, but the quality of the painting does not (I'm drinking it on purpose  Twisted Evil )

    Remember he is in 70mm xkatti xkatti  Embarassed 

    I won't bring him along tomorrow because I'll pack him with the Consul, William's & Jeremy's busts & OBVIOUSLY with Lt.Weymar & his LVG  Laughing  Laughing  Laughing My wish is for the LVG to have REVENGE on Telford, no more no less HONESTLY  I love you  I love you  I love you

    Please Note....Pics are as they came out of my Fujifilm Digicam as this morn I thought better not to adjust afte all....they're only downsized by HALF that's all  Shocked  Shocked  Shocked

    Lovely Ray, the only thing i don;t like is that very dark (black?) outline around his beard. But it might be the photos. I don't know.

    Thanks Bri  Laughing 

    There is a dark demarcation/shadow line & it is very thin...the pics are enlarged & hence the "thickness/dark" line  pale 

    Digital Images can be/are very deceiving Suspect
