    LVG's Lt.Weymar

    Post  Ray on Tue Oct 08, 2013 11:18 pm

    At last Shocked I've started Lt.Weymar who will be depicted just as he posed & appeared for this photo Cool 
    Hopefully BOTH Pilot & LVG will be READY for Telford Suspect 




    I'm using the body of the Red Baron (ModelCellar 1:32nd Sculpted by Mike Good) for this conversion Twisted Evil while I carefully CUT OFF THE CAP from Richtofen's head pale 



    And so using the bare head from this dude (ModelCellar 1:32nd Sculpted by Mike Good) as Lt. Weymar's smiling face & wearing Manfred's Cap king  



    And...this is where the sawing/mating/pinning of things is so far Embarassed 

    Forgive me for the SMALL RESOLUTION PICS Sad Sad Sad  I don't know if it is from my digicam or FROM THIS NEW WHATEVER ON MY NEW LAPTOP Sad affraid 
    It is past 23:15 & my eyeslids are getting sticky from focus fatigue Shocked Shocked Shocked  so bear a bit with me as I try n get better pics tomorrow What a Face What a Face What a Face What a Face

    Nice idea Ray but if you are posing on the wheels check the balance of the back and the legs and feet, it looks a bit static as it is and needs more natural weight ... see again the original foto I think the foot resting flows more the circular pattern of the wheel and the back is more leaning inwards ...

    Yes sure Ivan, he's just only pinned & nothing is secure as the boots are also dissected from the ankles so the correct final alignment would be achieved Twisted Evil 

    That is an old 1:32nd car tyre & had quite a difficult time with the balancing act Evil or Very Mad Laughing 

    I'm gonna try & shoot better pics before I move on Suspect 

    Thanks for looking as well Nannu cheers

    Thought so but I would also split the palm of the foot from the arch area that would follow the wheel better as you still have a flat foot, x'tahseb? i indicated the area ...

    Will leave that to the last as I would have to check it against the actual wheel & determine vis a vis how much surface area is needed or not :suspect:don't forget that you are seeing him standing "incorrectly" on a blob of white tac Mad 

    Since the palm of the foot is not "hinged" from where you indicated I am finding it a bit awkward to "split" it from that spot however however pale 

    Don't forget that I still have all the necessary leverage from the ankles as they are only joined by a pin & I can/should include any "necessary movement by putty" at the base of the leather overlap where they are joined by the boots for the correct final alignment Twisted Evil 

    Hope you can understand my "explanation" Laughing

    As always....... master at work! Cool 

    From my point of view: Can the guy be so casually with one hand in pocket and holding a cane... balancing on one foot, On a wheel!?

    I think he must be supporting his weight somewhere .... but is not clear in the photo. Is his right hand really in his pocket? Or is he holding the side of the jet plane?

    Thank You All for looking & for always being overly kind with your comments Cool 

    Some more progress while he's baking in the oven lol!

    I fleshed the musculature a bit before the clothing, hoping I won't be too way off at that stage pale 

    Please note that now, everything is FIXED in place  pale  so God Be With Me Please I love you king

    Thanks a lot for your encouraging words my SSM Bros I love you cheers 

    Hoping to have all attire sans the coat ready by the end of the week Shocked  

    LVG is at Joseph's again after we so STRESSFULLY pale (especially me having to "mishandle" something which I didn't build) aligned Lt. Werner to stand/sit on the wheel Cool 

    NO WAY I was gonna drill that locating hole in the wheel affraid  so I shoved the BURDEN on Joseph which he did without a sweat Suspect  Laughing

    I just couldn't resist these updated pics while "WE" wait for Joseph & the LVG Suspect Suspect Suspect 

    At least, amidst ALL the late STRESS Sad Sad Sad  I am quite happy with how the Folds on the right coat's sleeve & both breeches Unfolded Laughing Laughing Laughing 

    Next is the "beefing up" of the left sleeve & the actual coat, after obviously ALIGNING him against or not against the rigging  pale pale pale pale
