Completed "I have a Cunning Plan" (Elan13 Miniatures, 1/12)

    Hello all, here is another photo of the box art I did for Elan13 Miniatures. This is a wonderful sculpt by Rob Lane - really enjoyed painting it. I used Vallejo and Andrea acrylics.

    For the lenses I used a product called Micro Kristal Clear - this is like a white glue that dries transparent. It can be easily spread inside the rims of the glasses and it dries in about 15 mins. I would recommend letting it dry in a sealed container to stop any specks of dust getting in it. Also, make sure you paint the glasses before applying the Micro Kristal Clear.

    Hope you like it.

    Thanks,
    Edward

    Oh thanks very much Edward, you've really done it to me haven't you? Now I'm going to have to get out all my old Blackadder series for a rerun........., just when I was getting over Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy:LOL:. Seriously though, great job, well done.
    Best wishes, Gary.

    Thanks a lot guys!

    The scarf was copied from photos online - there are various colours in there. I tried to make the stripes irregular, following the photos. The bust is 1/12.

    You could certainly do conversions to other Baldricks?

    Sgt Major (Windsor Davis) and Lofty (Don Estelle) - what a good idea. From their version of 'Whispering Grass' -
    "I will not have gossip in this jungle"! Happy memories of a more innocent time.
