    Found some unique spare parts on ebay, found an old Phoenix empire lady, there also and this looks good what do you think?

    I would not use that right arm, it is way too big and muscular. Other than that this looks like a nice scene. I have some phoenix models and think they are great.

    This looks really nice, she looks well out of his league :) but I'm no oil painting.
    Ref the arm, it does look too big and the hand is very large.
    Excuse my bad quick drawing, try reducing from the shoulder down, past elbow to wrist as below.
    You with have to add some definition of muscle.
    I marked it in a black line. This should be quite easy with a scalpel, bring the wrist in also to match the other side. If you get it matching you should only need to add the top of the glove
    You will need a new hand but that shouldn't be a problem, Hornet hands are small and would give the feminine look at this scale.
    Nice work
    Best wishes

    You might also want to bring the shoulder in, reduce the inside that fits to the body, but I can't see a front view so not sure and it may be ok once you match the shoulder ruff.

    Great little composition , love the character in his face and the Phoenix lady holds up well detail wise. I agree the arm isn't right though - was there a problem with using the original one?

    Is that a Hornet head on that officer, Steve? Looks like one of their uglier, er, less handsome offerings. Will you be giving him hair?

    Thanks for all the feedback guys, Yes everyone is right, the arm is too large, I was just trying it out for composition. Yes it is a Hornet head and yes it is rather ugly, but it is "leering" at her rather pronounced décolletage. and yes he will have hair.

    Great figure composition, Steve (y)(y)(y).
    Have to agree with the rest, the lady's right arm and hand does appear a tad big, compared to the left side :LOL:.
    Other than that, it's looking mighty good so far :D.
    Looking forward to the next step(s) my friend :p.
    Until then, Cheers!
    Kenneth.

    Hello Steve,
    I like the look of what you are doing, the lady's left arm is not the original for the figure you have, it comes from figure R1.
    If you would like a new right arm for her contact me at: enquiries@sanddmodels.co.uk.
    Kind regards,
    David.
