    Just put the finishing touches on this slight conversion from Pegaso. The conversion is the addition of a shirt, which I sculpted out of Magicsculp. I tried to choose a colour palette that would reflect the natural dyes available at the time. That's about all the commentary I can think of for now, so if anyone has any questions or comments, I would be happy to entertain them.
    Thanks for checking the pictures out.

    A few people have added a shirt to this wee man, and I think it definitely helps. The tartan is very neatly painted in what we imagine to be contemporary colours. Is the slight sheen due to the paint been wet?

    much better if one thinks to the climate in the highland region much more likeable.the orginal one without looks for my taste too pathetic and unrealistic

    Nice clean and tidy work Glenn. The addition of the shirt definatley helps.

    Hi Carl; thanks for the feedback. I think the sheen is the result of the lighting being too harsh during the photo shoot. I'll give it another blast of dull coat just to be sure though.
    Thank Tony, I made the pattern up, just trying to get a "historically accurate" colour scheme rather than concentrating on any one specific tartan. Besides, there aren't any historically accurate references for highland tartans dating before the late 1700's, so who's to say I didn't get it right?;)
    Thanks Pinsel, I owe my time spent in Scotland for insights into the climate, and there is NO WAY any self respecting Scot would be wandering around the highlands without a shirt, although I did see a fair few doing just that around Paisley when the temperature hit 19 degrees last May.
    Thanks also Barrie, Marc and Jay, it's always good to hear from you and thanks for having a wee look.
