    Chris,
    The bust is looking better and better. The beard and helmet look first rate. Anxious to see some paint on it.

    Hi clrsgt,

    Thanks mate, liking the detail I'm getting with the sculpey and also think the GS is perfect for hair. I made a couple of nice little tools from some fine medical grade needs and fashioned some chopsticks for handles and use these for this purpose along with doing eye's.

    Hi Arj,

    Yeah, you can't beat original old style unless it's a really good digital one, I guess? :-p

    Hi Chris,
    would you mind showing me a picture of the sculpting tool you made for the beard? Good effort on the helmet by the way.

    Hi Scotty,

    No problem mate, I cut the needle a little shorter and hand drilled and glued into the chopsticks which I had also shortened. Finished it off with some greenstuff shaped and used to reinforce the needle.

    Cheers

    Hi Chris,
    Just catching up on this one, are you leaving the rear of the patrol jacket blank or adding ornamentation?
    cheers

    Hi Richie,
    You mean there's an option? Ok so after you mentioned this I had a look and presume this is what you're meaning? Looks like I'm not at the priming stage just yet, thanks Richie :-p

    You're right Nap, but are you sure he's not just one of those loony vegans?
