    Okay guys, I got to admit, having only 2 figures for the Sahariana seemed a little too " sparse " for such an interesting and unusual vehicle, so I " bit the bullet " as it were and created another crew member to join the other 2 ( or is it three, does the monkey count :lol: ? ). Anyhow, the head is from Model Victoria, hands from Hornet, boots from Warriors and the rest from putty, paper-clips and cut-down plastic figure parts for the basic torso and pelvis. I planned the figure to be in a squatting pose, although I may have him resting on something later on, we'll see how it goes. Once again, thanks for looking and cheers !

    Kenneth - I think he makes a good addition and the sculpting is up to your excellent quality. Maybe it is the photos, angle they were taken, etc., but I think he looks anatomically out of proportion in the caboose. To me, his butt looks too big, Kenneth. How's that for a frank discussion about anatomy on a public forum? :)
    I'm only pointing this out because when I do something similar and don't see it, I want you to bring it to my attention. As always, feel free to disagree and ignore my comments.

    All the best,
    Dan

    Hi Dan !
    Thanks for your frank reply to my post :lol: !!! Nope, I went back to check on the dude's butt and it looked fine to me ;) . I believe the angle of the photography contributed to the " expansion " of his derriere. That, plus the fact that he is wearing one of those " baggy " Italian uniform slacks makes the posterior look a little larger. Anyhow, please continue to be frank in your comments; it's pointers like these that help me improve modelling-wise :) . Cheers !
    Kenneth.
