    Hi everyone

    Picked this up from flea bay for a bargain price ...a Hawk Miniatures bust of Lanoe Hawker who lost his life in air combat with the Red Baron

    Depicted in balaclava and warm flying clothing

    Originally the goggles were under the balaclava but I fancied having them outside on the forehead ....

    This was the original painted by Paul Blaber as box art

    Good start, Kev - personally, I would indent the goggle straps into the balaclava - I cant imagine them riding on top of the creases....(y)

    Looking at a enlarged picture , it might be be but it looks like a folded up peak at the balaclava front ...bit like a beanie cap peak .....might add that down ...mmmmmm

    I think the balaclava has ribbing around the forehead area to give it some grip and stop it swivelling around and blinding the wearer!(y)

    I have added rubbing around the edge where it meets the face , doesn't really show well

    As suggested by Valiant ...the strap pushes into the balaclava now ....all primed up the balaclava is currently a base cost of dark blue ....but not too sure wether it looks "right"


    Thanks for looking in

    Liking the way this one's shaping up Kev. (y)
    Look forward to seeing him finished. Are you going for a pre-flight look or the full covered in oil on the face look? (which I like the idea of personally)
    Cheers
