    Been a lot longer than I would like for these next progress shots.

    Finally done! Though not on his proper base. Took a quick snap before hitting the sack tonight.
    Will endeavour to get some more shots of full figure in days to come.
    Bottom half to finalise stages on this thread for your consideration.

    A relieved modeller ;-)

    What's blowing me away is how you replaced part of the casting with real scale wool dyed the proper shade of khaki - none of that 1/6th crap with the big stitching. Amazing job and I am sure epic patience!

    Thanks Colin though not sure what you meant ref "replaced casting"?
    I just added a helmet cover from fine gauze bandage.
    The rest is paint.

    Just being funny that your uniform looks like real wool. Too smart ass to be understood I guess. :)
