    Hi guys,

    Some progress pics of something Im working on at the moment. Depicting an Antarctic explorer c.1912, based loosely on R F Scott. Ive always been fascinated by the story, since I was young, after reading my Ladybird book. (Those books have a huge amount to do with my love of history!)

    Using a donor head from Ross at MMM, with a reworked nose, jaw ans mouth, all new additions are in Miliput and Duro. Goggle rims made from plastic tubing with Duro lenses. A little artistic licence employed here, but I hope you like it!

    Cheers Nap - Id got it in my mind that it was a sort of khaki drill colour, or even going towards mustard - I know the mitten tapes are off white.

    It even occurred to me that this might look different painted in greyscale....:nailbiting:
