    WOW Mate
    That is one beautiful figure.
    That pose is without doubt (to my mind at least) your best action figure to date.
    I cannot praise this work highly enough Jim. You have really upped your game.
    All the best,
    Keith

    Thanks Joe & Mike, appreciate it(y)

    Scotty, I work by making a wire frame for the legs, drill and fit into the bottom of the torso, then the wire is shaped into the rough desired position, the "feet" end of the wire is then fitted into a drilled wooden block for stability whilst working on it, I then build up over the wire frame with Milliput making a rough human muscle structure, I then add again over the top with either Milliput or magic sculpt to "dress" the legs, all fine detail I sculpt in magic sculpt only. hope this helps....go on give it a go!;)
    Cheers

    Brilliant work, there, Jimbo, you've captured the upper bust action with appropriate leg positioning to a "T"(y) Look forward to seeing this painted up.

    Really looking good. I prefer full figures to busts, so glad to see you add the bottom half.
