    Hi at all...it is super hot here in Italy and we are ready for a small stop first of ROME 2020.
    But I wanna show at all, our "last"? one of the series kids...

    When we are using mobiles, laptop, or whatever electronic device there is someone in the opposite parts of the world that is working for it.
    Sadly this precious minerals are in poor Africa Regions...

    here the last childhood busts called "cobalt" sculpted by Mujin for Scientificmodels.shop

    we are working to devolve an amount for an Etiopian school... we will see...

    bust is in scale 1:10 and it will be release in September 2020 bambino minatore 1.jpg BAmbino minatore 2.jpg bambino minatore 6.jpg BAmbino minatore 7.jpg Schermata 2020-07-22 alle 09.09.32.png

    Excellent bust and I really appreciate the subject matter, being not the usual killing machine called soldier.

    Another wonderful and emotive piece from this gifted sculptor - a glance at his FB page
    shows some equally magical things to come - highly collectable in my view.

    i have nothing against soldiers be clear... (soldier bust, airplaine, tank etc..).but i think that painting miniatures could be much more....is just windows to shows different aspects...

    i have a great feeling with Mujin...all process usually starts from some books that i read, then i spent some weeks or month looking for references...trying to understand in what way i can use it in my company, and then i talk with Mujin to explain story and showing him what i am looking for...then his hands starts to makes it real... :) sometimes we win sometimes not...;)

    dear Mirofsoft you are missing a POINT...one BIG , enormous , huge point...i don't take care if it is cobalt, gold, arsenic or whatever...(i lived in south africa for a scientifi research and trust in me , situation due diamonds is a tragedy)...what I am doing is just put the painter and modeller in the other side of this hobby.
    I don't give and i don't judge anybody if they like to paint an SS soldier...painting rifle or sword full of blood ...is a choiche....and i will accept...but i like to show also what there is behind what we decide is normal....is my personal point of view... :)

    Excellent work and a very sympathetic idea. Obviously you can't capture every aspect of reality in a single bu (and if you could, I bet it would be nice to look at).
