    I have just painted the carved horse head.

    No wait!

    Not painted, but I have tormented me ...:

    My already great respect for our colleagues with the small scales has increased again considerably ...

    Thanks, Martin! I didn't know if the original Knauf was ivory or wood. I cheat for mine, I use Testor's gloss enamel Cream :D (it also doubles as flesh and buff on my 54mm toy soldiers).

    I like how your Miliput-Zopf came out, too. I would have tried fine wire, but that would have been too rigid and it couldn't have been shaped so nicely.

    Prost!

    So - I started today to paint the pistol- annew as "iron" / "steel", for I think,that will look better at the bust.

    I started to paint - and then quickly stopped.

    Indeed, when, if not now, is the opportunity to change a few things at the pistol, which I would rather different!

    So I thought I'd take the gun lock again with a little sculpting:

    Two screws on the lock plate were modeled, a third (in the back) added.

    Screwing the valve was re-done, as well as the shock spring.

    Finally, I have the "battery" up-fed (the grater plate for the flint) a little more, which was too thin, which is hard to see from the pictures.

    Long story short ...:

    That's good thinking to add all those details Martin. In particular since the pistol is right up front for all to see. It will definitely add to the 'Oh wow!' factor. :wideyed: (y)

    Back to the Nagaika-whip!

    I have painted the leather parts - the handle loop and the small fringes under the handle.

    [IMG]

    Then got my "ivory handle" even with a coating with...

    [IMG]

    Now it looks like that - the "polished ivory" is quite realistic, I think..:

    Looks good is probably an understatement Martin, it looks excellent. The amount of time, patience and love that have gone into this piece is astonishing.
