    Hello all,

    Been a while since I have posted anything here but I have been a bit busy with different projects. One of these is a converted bust of Wayne Rooney which I have turned into a Borg drone from Star Trek. In order to transform him I filed away his hair and used milliput extensively to make a headset and uniform. His suit is painted in acrylics and the head is oils over acylics. As you can see I have put the completed Borg alongside an identical original Wayne Rooney bust. I hope you like it.

    Hi Jazz ,

    Blimey thats a good way to use the Rooney bust....and such an improvment as well ..they would look good as a set piece at a show ...before/after...and painted in Acrylics as well (well at least the body!!!)

    No idea what a Borg is but nice work converting and painting ...rather you than me with all that black ..still only one eye to sort out!!!

    Thanks for sharing

    Happy modelling mate

    Mr Rooney, resistance is futile. Jazz has assimilated you beautifully.

    Cheers Bob. Glad to see another Trekker out there. I hope to convert a Ferengi next.
