    My 'Cornered Diorama' - WIP (NEED AN OPINION!!!!!!!!!!!!GUYS....HELP)

    Post  Noel Petroni on Tue Dec 22, 2009 6:09 am

    At the moment I'm also doing this.........



    It will be staged in France 1941



    Since in the box there was only one figure cycling, I had to cast him and make another two. This one is all in Milliput except the head which received the first layer of hair


    Hair is ready

    Thanks, guys!

    I will be adding this figure, who comes from JAGUAR (probably discontinued), and I really liked the crisp detail and pose that I decided to cast him. On the left is the resin figure and on the right is the Milliput one which still needs to be cleaned. He will be as SS, so I have to make some tiny changes


    Another biker dude ready. Head is cast and is Milliput. The figure is the original Tamiya

    Hi Noel, when you have some time can you show us how to cast the figures. I would love to have some pilots done in milliput.
