    Hi Nap,
    Happy new year to you as well. The sabre and bayonet are wire with roughly the same mix of GS and milliput. I've then sanded it, will need to add details onto it when attaching it.
    Currently finishing off the arms which I've been changing and thickening as they would have been double or triple layered with clothing. I think I'll then move to the cowhide knap sack and do that and then start attaching the arms after. All the while I'm trying to keep attention to anything that needs tidying up or filling, I don't want to rush and miss things or do a half arsed job. Thanks for keeping an eye on my sculpt and the support, I know you've been busy doing yours and it's coming along well, we should be regarded as Leonardo's in our fields by the end of the year ;)
    Regards
    Chris.

    Hi PFer's,
    Been a little while from last update, so....
    [IMG]
    This is where I'm at, so with time allowing, I've spent a few times adding and removing the arms. I wasn't happy with where I had positioned them as they looked to long, or to thin or not enough creases etc. Still not 100% sold but anyway I'm not far off and maybe just a sand here or their.
    Have done majority of knapsack and will be playing with the straps and buckles. It's a slow process, time consuming but enjoyable when I can fit in.
    Cheers
    Chris.

    Excellent work on that hand, I know they are notoriously difficult to get right.

    Hi Scotty,
    Thanks mate, I've sort of been a little on the apprehensive side approaching this part. Mind you It's kinda been a rollercoaster with the whole sculpt as some of it has come together with minimal work and alot needs to be redone more than twice. The arms were taken off and repositioned, rebulked and sanded about four times over. The left hand has come together ok and it's actually helped that it separated from the arm so I can get to it easier. I would like to attempt adding some veins so we'll see how that pans out.
    Cheers
    Chris.

    I takes courage to strip off the good work you've done if it doesn't feel right. Well done.

    Hi Pfer's,
    Just posting the final stages of my sculpture before I prime it for painting. What started out as a project that had no real finish line has turned into something that I'm reasonably happy with. I'm happy with the fact that I've managed to get it to a finished point ready to paint. I've appreciated the feedback and positive comments from the members, and eternally greatful for the advice. The last stages were the hands and again the arms that were again changed as they were still not right. So I'll post on WIP for the painting part in the near future with he better quality digital slr.[IMG]

    Thanks Nap,
    If you look carefully, under the right hand is half a choc chip.
