Clint Eastwood

    Hello again,
    Here is another recently completed bust. It is Legends and Lore's 1/9 Confederate Guerrilla. The company is long gone I believe which is a shame as they put out some beautiful kits in their time. As you can see, it depicts Clint Eastwood as his role in Outlaw Josey Wales, taken straight from the movie poster. The likeness is spot on and has some great detail. The only let down of the kit is the pistols, so I replaced them with scratchbuilt ones.
    The kit is painted in oils and humbrols, with the guns painted with Vallejo acrylics ( something new for me- and I like them!!!).
    Hope you like him.
    Ben

    Hi Rob, good to hear from you. Also thanks Roger and Mark. I'm quite happy about how this one came together, the redoing the guns definately improved the kit.

    You did a great job there. May I suggest you add a cigar in his mouth as a finishing touch. I still remember that scene form one of his western movies where he spat on that dog. Obviously, the dog was not amused :D

    Cheers Carl, Giorgio, Dan and George, I'm happy that you liked it. Giorgio, you aren't the first to mention adding a cigar or that particular part in the movie with the dog.

    Ben, I love this kit! It took me some time to track down a version for myself, but I'm glad I did, because as you say, the likeness is just fantastic! I'll also agree completely, that the pistols are a let down in this kit. I have to say, yours are FANTASTIC! Just what this piece needs! Shame you couldn't have cast a few copies up before you painted this and shared with friends.............hint-hint! Very nice paintwork on this classsic! Very fun piece!

    You did a fine job getting that "gruffy" Clint look. Nice job on the pistols. Chris
