    Hi All ,
    my latest creation in 75mm, the winner of the 100 meters at the Paris Olympics in 1924, Harold Abrahams. First figurine of these Olympics because the next ones take place in Paris in 2024. This is not a subject that is frequently found on this forum but a little originality from time to time is good.

    Hi,
    a big thank you for your comments and your likes, I realize that many of you like original subjects and different from military subjects, it's great! I forgot to specify the materials I use, in beige from the magic sculp, in green from the duro, in yellow from the personal molding resin parts and to finalize I use Tamiya putty.
    For the primer, I use a commercial spray that I buy in DIY stores. Two thin coats provide a good base for painting. Thanks again for your support.

    Will you incorporate into a diorama/vignette?

    Yes!
    I thought of realizing the arrival of the 100 in its entirety but I thought about it because the scale of the 75 mm is quite large and the place to store my parts is limited.
    Also I will finish this figure and think because the sculpting and painting of all these figures is going to be very long and difficult when looking at the photo finish. Thank you for your interest in my post

    Hi everyone,
    and thank you for your comments. The modeling of the American scholz continues but his attitude on arrival is quite complicated to achieve, but with a little time and patience I should finish it soon.
