    The last one of series of IDF busts is a Merkava tank crewman in 1:10 scale

    Also nice work!

    Maybe the helm is a little bit smaller, doesn't seem it smaller?
    By the way, I like it.

    Dealing with helmets I've made both IDF tank crew helmets that are in use.
    Here is the second one. And how it is look when some parts disassembled. Neither of them is too small as I see.

    Vlad, great sculpting, can I ask what medium you're using and also how do you create the helmets, do you use vaseline then press the putty onto the head or ?
    Thanks for showing.

    Balázs, you never hurted me, my friend. Everything is completely OK.
    Ken, to this work the same as to other two I used Crenit-Doll-Collecnion - it's the briwn one, and Apoxie Sculpt (or probably Apoxie Clay - I don't remember exactely, maybe both of them) - the white details on the model.
    Creating of helmets is a step-by-step process 'cause first I have to make underhelmet (if this is a right word to a cap sitting on the head) and after that I can made two different helmets. To seperate the layers of materials I use vaseline, right you are.
