    Hey all,

    Thought I'd try a conversion. I picked up a Russell Crowe gladiator bust from a parts bin in Atlanta. Greg Bowman gave me the idea to convert it to his character from MaC. He's about 70% done...

    Hey James,

    He is looking good but there is something missing. ;) have you seen the movie? He has some damage to his left ear. Here is a picture.

    Great catch Joe. Yes, I did notice that, but wasn't going to include it - looked kind of wierd. They never mentioned it in the movie (that I recall), I guess the real Jack Aubry had such an injury?

    Great idea, Jim. One of my favorite movies!! Let's see more as you progress.

    I was a little disappointed though. You left the "s" out of your posting title. I thought we had a new Phoenix Phollies vignette!! :lol:

    Jim, Nice but. I would fill in every other buttonhole on his waistcoat as a period one would only have about 9-10 buttons from throat to waist.~Gary

    Pat, no offense taken. I was commenting on my spelling skills, not your post. :)

    Hope to get him done by this weekend.
