    Pozdrav Darko,
    this looks great, it will be a nice hommage to our history.

    Hvala Ivane (Thx Ivan !)

    I started with casting, some parts are finished, some are taking the rubber bath.
    Now, since the version with the axe got mostly negative feedback, I simply did the version without hands in case where helmet will be put on the head:

    Now, Pinsel, which version do you prefer, I assume it is the version with naked head and hand holding the helmet ??? Still have to do the casts for hands, but I hope they will be finished next week ;)

    Markus, I'll cast all parts except the hand holding the axe, but molds for hands will be last to do (as they are most complicated), so no problem, You just need to wait a bit more for the hands.

    Negative feedback was mostly here im my modeling club from guys that I know for years. So, if they say that it looks unnatural, I believe them ;)

    regards !

    First cast of the helmet.
    I was afraid of this one, but it turned OK, no air bubles, and seamlines are all from inside:

    As I am lame painter, I tried with faux bronze.
    Figure is ready for modellers contest next week in Zagreb.
    Paint is somewhat rough, but unfortunatelly I did not find copper or bronze color,
    so I was working with what I had...
