    also (although my art days are way behind me nowadays)(and I never could do portraits)this is supposed to be Rene from Allo Allo, he will be behind a dirty window in the dio so I may get away with it, if not there's always plan B.

    Looks great on the rear seat and the gun itself is really nicely detailed......however you have to bear in mind that it is pretty heavy and will sink somewhat into the seat. you can't have it perched on the seat without even having a small depression in the seat. Think about that and if it is possible to do it at this point in time.
