    Hi folks,

    WIP on this 120mm commission of a Japanese medical orderly, Russo - Japanese War, 1905. Still work to be done on the cap and the head, this figure will be available commercially later this year. Parts tacked in place for the photos. Milliput and Duro over copper wire armature.

    Thanks for looking,

    Nice work, only critisism I can offer is that the face does not look very oriental to me (lacking the high cheekbones and amandel shaped eyes typical of Japanes and Chinese people). For me that would detract significantly from the overall look of the figure.

    Thanks for the comment - however, the features are just roughed out, as it is a WIP at the moment. If you look closely, he has no eyes or ears yet......:)

    A really promising figure of a really obscure subject. That conflict is a great source for modellers.
