    Hi Guys ,

    I wanna tell you a story ...many moons ago my good friend did a bit of work on this Amati bust as I fancied painting it holding the hawk mascot ...so.....

    Arm added ..great job

    Hawk sourced ....good 'un

    Update...

    Now all primed except the bird ...as I have lost it .....it's flown his nest , Jimbo has a 1/16 th bird but need to check this out with the bust as its 1/10th ...might work?

    Has any one got a hawk in the spares box that might be suitable ?

    I will post WIP pics soon

    Happy modelling

    Hi Kev.
    The only bird of prey I can think of is in the 1/9th Mig Steppe hunter bust.
    It is an eagle, and it is a big bugger
    But I got mine from Creative models for a tenner.

    It could be worth a try.

    Love the idea, sorry no bird. I have this bust and thought of doing some conversion work to it as well, if I could only sculpt.

    Enjoy your day chaps, I do hope Jimbo is fit enough to travel?

    Piccies of your trophies and awards would be good too.

    Good luck with the chicken, the French national soccer
    mascot is freely available now he's banned from the Euro Championships BTW.

    Hi Wayne
    If you can get hold of any Amati bust you won't be disappointed as they are very well sculpted, casted and way below average cost of other 1/10 bust on the market
    Cheers

    Saw this one with its decorator at Salisbury.
    It's certainly looking good, but a bit forlorn without a bird on his arm.

    Cheers,

    This is looking splendiferous Kev.

    I really envy you the upcoming opportunity to paint so many straight lines so closely together on this shemag.....honest :)

    Could you use the 'Sherlock Holmes Tweed' painting technique on that?

    Hi Paul,

    Thanks it will look good ..spent nearly 2 hours lining the design in to find it was too wide ..so off it came and now repainted the White ...oh how I wish they used white for undress !

    The actual design is not squares but angled diamonds ..think I might be going for the overall effect !

    Watch ths space
