    This my finished Lakota Chief 1/10 conversion to full figure of a Hartons miniatures bust. I say finished apart from the needed addition of a name plate,Hunting knife & tomahawk,

    He's been a long ongoing figure to complete & hence to say the feathers were a bit of a nightmare!
    Mostly painted in oils and mounted on a flat rock that I picked up in the Lake District of North West England.
    Legs were added using milliput & magisculpt over a wire frame.
    Hope you like him.
    The photos are not great but they are the best I could muster!
    Cheers
    Jimbo

    Congratulations, James:

    OhMa'Gosh. . . just a beautiful piece of work. Obviously, Sir, you have a great
    deal of discipline. Your attention to detail is something to marvel at. And I am
    sure this was such a difficult task. But each aspect of this most impressive
    presentation is of the highest skill and quality.

    Oh, to even be able to paint detail, i.e. the shield, the feathers, would be such
    a uplifting experience.

    And the photographs are quite good as well,

    Again, congratulations,

    the Miami Jayhawk

    I am sure the thrill of having such a unique piece if work in the cabinet will be just reward for the hours of effort and patience that have gone into this conversion.
    Just a great piece of work-congratulations,
