    Hi guys ,

    This is one of a couple of pieces on the bench , its a conversion/attempt at sculpting (with some help from Jimbo) of the PiliPili WAAF bust , a great one in itself but I wanted to change it so the body and arms wers built up , together with the haed and the cap , also I will be adding formation badges and rank ....an interesting project and one I have always wanted to create as a tribute to the ladies that served with so much dedication in the ATS.

    Still lots to do , bit more cleaning up , the details , the painting ..yes she will be blonde with red lipstick !!!!!

    Pockets have now been reworked , the badge has got "ATS" on it but might redo it as I am not 100% happy [IMG]

    ALL COMMENTS AND THOUGHT ARE VERY WELCOME

    Final pics

    Hi Guys ,
    Heres the final pre basecoat pictures , I have redone the stripes not once but 4 times !!!!! they are now more in keeping with the period as the others were too horizontal !!!

    Since these were taken I have cleaned up around all the badges and edges and primed her again !!!

    All comments are welcome of course .

    Mavis!!! She looks far too glamorous to be a Mavis but regardless of that, nice work. :)
