    First step is to remove the military uniform.I do this by hand which takes a little time.Changing from military to civilian is great ,rather than the other way around, as it is a case mostly of removing stuff.The faint belt lines that you see are actually filled with very thin super glue and sanded smooth with the surrounding surface.The rest of the parts can be used as is ,it will make a nice 20's mechanic when finished.He too will also will be sporting a cigarette in his hand.

    What your well-dressed ground personnel would be wearing in the 20's
    As you can see it is a real mixed bag of civvy and semi-military styles!

    The smoking buds bodies an done ,now it is on to the heads.I employed my usual method of shading with pastels over flat paint.I think that I will have to put the big guy standing in a gully.

    I wanted to have both these guys looking outside the diorama at something going on.Obviously one is looking toward the sky at maybe an airplane flying overhead.The other guy hasn't spotted it yet.The blond guy is very fair skinned and looking directly into the sun(light bulb) in this shot .Under more normal lighting I will see if his skin tone needs darkening at bit.
