    Well... the journey is coming to an end, the seventh Magnificent just arrived.

    Chico. With the face of Horst Buchholz. The only one who was probably the most successful.



    The bust will require some work to be cleaned, unfortunately the molds were already heavily worn out, but I am glad that I will be able to make it on time with all of them to one of the largest modeling events in Poland.

    I plan to paint the shirt not in traditional well-known blue color, but in the more interesting one, from a trip to Calvera's hideout :p . He was the only one to have two clothes :) .
    As always - everyone's invited!

    Great reference! You can clearly see that the vest was heavily shabby and faded, and the stripes! I love them!

    Hi Marcin

    Like the colour you've achieved on the shirt , ref stripes only my thoughts as they are difficult with the folds ...can you not just hint at them in the material

    Whatever you decide this is looking good

    Looking good Marcin! I'm wondering what you will get your teeth into once this group is finished? It's been a long haul.

    Thanks!
    Here's my wishlist:
    - M*A*S*H
    -Allo! Allo!
    But will anyone find a way to convince the publisher to want to shell out money for these projects?

    More glazes... And some stubble (base with blue):

    Sigh... I'd repeat it. MMM has more great kits ... Only three-piece ones, but it's always something.

    G'night.
