    Hi all,

    Well here I go. what i would like to do is post my progression of the MIG Procutions bust. As I have posted before it is a superb bust. Casting is excellent woth only three holes found. When you see the scales on the bust it makes you realise how good that casting is. I will start of with the bare resin face

    I have now primed the face and attached the top of the helmet. It does look a bit stange at this stage, the flaps will be added at a later stage. The primer really has brought out all of the details in the helmet casting, Makes you wonder how it was put there by the Yong B Song

    Hi John,

    i'm cleaning up the very same figure to do an article for Military Modelling, and it has perfect casting, like all the Mig kits I have got so far. I can't hardly wait to start painting.

    Greetings,

    Gino

    Gino, go for it!!!, the bust is great. i have stated work on the scale armour and have come up with a small problem. I think I will add a Paynes grey wash to pick up the gap between the scales before the colour is painted on as the grey primer is showing through on the gaps between them. Just goes to show they were added one by one, great stuff by the scupltors wife I believe. The pattern on the scales really got me thinking until I got the swing of it, never would believe three colours could be so hard. However those that know me will say it does prove a few points.

    It's coming along well John and I know it took time to do as well. Keep us posted on the progress (y)

    Well I have had a go at the wash and realised that the real problem was lack of effort by myself and trying to rush. Please see attached mark 2. This excerise did make me think that there are a lot of scales to paint

    More work yet to do in the tidy up stage but I am feeling more happy with it.

    all of the scales blocked in on the headgear armour. For my next step I think I will give it all a coat of varnish and then start to play around with a few washes of colour.
