    This is another project that has been in the wings. Since doing Roy's "Cheif Joseph Rides to Surrender" flat a couple of months ago, I find myself with a flat in the works all the time now.

    This is a Metal Models Indien Hidatsi, sculpted by Fabrice Eisenbach and I purchased this with 2 others from Red Lancers.

    My first step was to fasten to a work surface and spray prime the flat with R9 Floquil primer. After the primer drys I do the flesh the same way I would a full round figure and set aside to dry.

    After drying I re-cut the non flesh areas with floquil primer using a 3/0 brush and again set aside to dry.

    All comments welcome.

    Interesting piece, Guy. I considered getting this one myself. Now I wish I had!

    One technical question - looks like both this and the Roy Hunt piece have no palce to anchor it to a painting base. How do you anchor it to paint it so that you can move it to a more permanent backing later?

    Thanks for the feedback Pat. You can see the orange "Poster Tack" I have used to fasten the flat to the same board that I had Roy's flat on. It is an adhesive sold in Michaels for mounting posters to the wall without leaving holes. Pretty good stuff with a multitude of other uses.

    Guy,
    Is this poster tack stuff more tacky than Blue Tack, and is it more rigid, too?
