    Thanks Gary. I just realise that I have forgotten about the tin cup that the civil war veterans always dangled from their haversack. Anyway the SBS of the cup should be ready in a couple of days. Please check back then.

    regards :lol:

    Dear Folks,

    I have completed the tin cup. Attached is the SBS of it. Hope you like it. I have started on the shirt but again my attention is diverted to the hands. Therefore you should get to see the hands before the shirt.

    regards :lol:

    Wong, my friend,the cup turned out great.(y) (y)

    Looking forward to your step by step on the hands and shirt.
    I've always found sculpting hands to be very difficult,at least for me.

    Keep the good work.

    Roc. :)

    Thanks Roc, I have completed the hands and attahced is the SBS. They are resting on the handle of the spade. The last two pics showed the completed hands from different angle.

    Please note that I always wait for the putty to hardene before proceding to the next step. To speed up the process, I normally add on a little part before going to work and add on again just before bedtime. In this way I do not have to bother with the waiting.

    Please enjoy. :lol:

    Wong, That is a great sbs on the hands. It's hard to tell for sure, did you define the knuckles enough on the hands? Sorry if you did and I'm just not seeing them. The hands look very natural the way they are placed.~Gary

    Thanks Leigh and Gary,

    Yes, I did put knuckles on the hands but from the look of it, it's not obvious. I will try again tomorrow and post the end result for your comment.

    BTW guys, I welcome comments so please don't hold back. It only helps me to improve.

    regards :lol:

    thanks kenneth,

    How about this friday? Left a msg in your hp.

  16. y_wong New Member

    Dear folks,

    Lately I have not posted any pics in this forum as I am busy with another model. Anyway I have touch up the hands and hopefully the knuckles are obvious enough. You should be able to see them from the shadow that they casted.


    PS: I should be posting the arms in a little while....

    Dear folks, I am back again. Attached is the pics of the arms. I have a query regarding the badge that the pioneer wore on their arm. From the drawing, which can be seen from the first page, the badge with the two hatchets was on the right arm. But from the article in Don Troiani's civil war, it is mentioned that the badge was wore on the left. So does anyone know which arm it's suppose be on?

    Wong, my friend, the hands look great, I can definitely see the knuckles.
    The arms also look good,very detailed.

    Every time I see your work, it makes me wish I could sculpt .

    Keep up the good work and happy sculpting.

    Roc. :)
  19. y_wong New Member

    Dear Roc, thanks for the kinds words.

    It's time you give sculpting a try. The first step is also the hardest step. Once you get started it can only get better. Furthermore it's not expensive, some epoxy putty from the hardware store, toothpicks, files, blade, sandpapers, rolling pin and talcum powder and you are on your way. It's more fulfilling (at least for me) painting your OWN figures.
