    This is a WIP Airfix Multipose figure with a historex head and a preiser left arm, I'm adding putty and foil and might replace the buckles with etched brass. These were the first pack of figures I built and bought in the 70s and the results were thrown out long ago in a house clearance. This figure is, I hope, better than those lost pieces.
    The detail is very soft on the front of the figure and the grey plastic is very unforgiving.

    So far so good from I'm sitting, Pat. Look forward to seeing the finished result. ;)

    Ahh, memory lane. I bought some of these shortly after the Earth cooled. I remember I thought they were the catz meow. And back then I wasn't even doin' figures - airplanes mostly.

    Great start Pat! I wouldn't have thought about using the foil for the trousers. Good idea! Looks like you'll have to do something to blend the tops of the trousers into the plastic ones. Personally I mostly don't like brass buckles and try to sculpt them when possible. I think they turn out better in putty. Probably you could find both pro and con opinions. I would separate the fingers in that right hand. It doesn't look too life-like.

    All the best,
