    Hello everyone!

    Stuart at Stormtroopers Kindly gave me One of these cracking busts!
    It's not my area of interest but it is my first Carl Reid piece and I need some practice with my airbrush. So.........

    Guys review is here :)

    I got Straight on with this when I saw the castings and the only area I found a problem was the hat. It is a very delicate casting and while I was removing the casting lugs I cracked it! Thick superglue to the rescue!!!

    I have only undercoated the main torso/head and got this done

    and with the eyes about sorted and some more work on the face .....

    Hi Mark,

    There's so much character and detail in this sculpt I'm sure you'll make it look amazing. You've made a great start with the eyes.
