    The next small part that needs the figure, the thong , which stands next to the handle to the top of the sash out and is then wrapped around the sash.

    [IMG]

    Andy has attached to the figure a well- fitting corresponding small part , but I have broken promptly when adjusting ...

    [IMG]

    So I had to sculpt another thong by " Milliput ".

    The " History" of the thong must be taken to ensure that the things on the upper part are due to the relatively rigid braid ( to bend , not kink ) and very flexible at the bottom.

    So here is theoretically would be a flourishing fuller but you can not!

    Because at the bottom of the thong was a small leather bag, was sewn into a rifle or pistol bullet , which made the Nagaika a deadly weapon ...

    This bag - I have also modeled from " Milliput " - was relatively heavy, so go to gravity straight down .

    I tried to imitate - and I'm actually quite pleased with the result ...

    How was that? "Work takes work by itself!"

    Due to the thong new made ​​some changes now are on the program ...:

    First of all, I have to leave the mounting holes disappear into the original string should be stuck.

    [IMG]

    I did that by sculpting a piece of sash modeled below.

    Next, had the "whip pocket" that is casted on the figure ...

    [IMG]

    ... has to be removed from the figure - that I have of me "made ​​Proxxon.

    Instead of this "pocket" had a string are modeled, is hanging on the later, the little silver can for the ignition powder - which was "not to see the original under the whips bag.

    Thus, the prior is today. The newly made ​​additional turns of the sash are already painted ...:

    Among their sashes, the Cossacks wore in the 17th Century a leather belt, with other items of equipment and especially the saber ...:

    [IMG]

    [IMG]

    This belt had to of course look "gorgeous" and were therefore provided mostly more or less generous with silver fittings ...:

    [IMG]

    Since our figure only which is to see the end of this belt, Andy has missed this a lovely silver fitting.

    Belt and silver hardware I painted today - with these colors ...:

    [IMG]

    And like this our Cossack looks now ...:

    Now it goes on with blue ...

    Today I have painted the first "segment" of the lower Kaftan - and I've tried to make the range between light and dark back as far as possible.
    This makes the veneering Although much more difficult and complicated, but the result makes up for the effort but very.

    Once again I have worked with these colors ...:

    [IMG]

    And so my little Cossack looks now ...:

    The - quite desirable - side effect is that you now can see the details better on the relatively dark and very quiet acting color ...!

    This Cossack must of been a man of means, as he sure has a lot of well made and elaborately decorated accoutrements for doing battle :D ! Keep going Martin, we're with you. Oh, and thanks for continuing to provide those color mixes (y)!

    Cool work Martin! I noticed that you decided to paint the Kaftan in quadrants. Are you using a wet palette to preserve your blue colour?
    Following with great interest!
    Cheers,

    No, not a wet Palette.

    I mix my colors on a white bathroom tile and let dry a rest of the last used mixture, on which I orient myself the next day ...

    Well- on this side of the blue caftan is ready. I have particularly tried, to work out the seam that Andy has modeled in the right place.

    What's missing are the green braid on the edge - and a detail that I have left out ...
