Dog in 1/72

    Hey Guys,
    i need a peeing Minedog for a small Vignette i want to build.
    A friend sent me a Dog that could be converted to an Minedog.
    It is a softplastic (very hard to clean the seams) Dog from a Revell WWI Figureset.
    As i need a peeing Dog, the Dog from the box looks like more walking, i cut one leg of and prepared it so far.
    Then I used Superglue to fix it back again on the figure, and used Magic-Sculpt to get the right proportions right.
    There is still a lot of work to do, such as fixing the other leg on the Dog, clean the seams, make the other bags aso...

    As it is the first REAL conversion I make and the first time i use Magic-Sculpt, I´m pretty pleased with it.

    For further Informations about Minedog (and the drawing that i used for reference), check this site:

    Ok,now up to the Pics:








    I hope you like it a bit.
    Please let me know some comments :)

    Hey Guys,
    thank you for the kind words, glad you like it :lol: .

    I made some update on the conversion the last days.
    I finished the two bags and starting to change the angle on the lifted leg.
    It really is some hard work as the dog is really tiny.

    I have to change the postion of the right leg on the backside to.

    The Dog compared to my finger (i bent the right front leg and need to fix that).

    I hope you like it so far.
