    Started on this at the weekend, funnily enough a new mini drill kit i had ordered from amazon also arrived so put it into use, it does create rather a lot of resin dust, so a mask is required when cuting and sanding bit, however it's pretty amazing at doing what it does and for such a great price and its cordless (£22.99) you can get one from here

    I have already done a review of the kit over here


    Upper and lower torso joined and gap filled with some milliput. Sanded smooth. small resin gates ahve now also been removed;

    Boots attached and pegged to a block of wood for painting, not sure about the position of his right foot though, may need to break it off somehow and re attach ( at the end);

    Head is just dry fitted, after removing the pour stub under neath his head.

    Could just be the angle of the pic, but it looks like the right foot might need to be rotated outward a little, more in line with the knee. It looks to be pretty much straight ahead, but the knee is out to the right. Looks a little painful! (y)

    That's what I was thinking, did line it up with the base of his jeans, but it does look awkward, out with the saw later!

    Got all the flesh areas, face and hands, blocked in with base tone. Painted in the eyes, need a bit of work on the right eye, but please overall with the outcome. next to bring life to the face.

    Good start Steve. I like the positioning of his irises, it shows an intens stare, with a slight squint, against the sun. Looking forward to the skin tones developing.
