    Hola Guys,

    When I lost my DSL I had a streak of "depression" so I sculpted this 1/35th figgie of a Sleeping US GI. It is from a picture in Concord Publication "The GI in Combat NW Europe 44-45" page 13. Excellent book for all you American WWII fans, and its cheap I paid $10 for it!

    Clothing is Magic Sculpt and lead foil, the arms are Aves. I find it easier to make the mannequin in Aves as it is white so I can see how thick the clothing is.

    Let me be the first to congratulate you on this figure!
    Lovely pose and drapes. I see you have been working
    hard on the drapes and folds. They look very natural and
    clean. :) Keep it up!

    Anders, Nice job. The folds look good. All the shots of the figure look good with the exception of the profile view. In that shot they look short (camera angle?) Anyway, I think WE could ALL benefit from being without a computer for a short time (though the withdrawl will drive you nuts). I think YOUR time without has been to your advantadge.~Gary

    Thanks guys!

    Gary is right, there is a huge withdrawal factor involved!

    This was a fun little project, we'll see what he ends up doing, probably will just end up in my drawer but it was a good learning experience and a lot of fun to do!

    Thanks again guys, you keep me focused to keep trying to get better.

    Thanks guys!

    I think that sometimes once you get started on something and just go with the flow it works out pretty good. Maybe a slight withdrawal is good for production as you do one thing to not think about the other...Im abuot to try to quit smoking so maybe that will have the same effect...I hope!

    Thanks again guys.
