Mr. Corleone 1:9 <<<EASY BUST>>>
Sculpted by Mujin Park
Painted by Hyohee Han
Nice subject....but far from a portrait/likeness
When I was searching for just such a bust a few months ago, what I found were dolls ("action figures") with doll clothes. Then, I thought I hit the jackpot, but found that the product being offered was a computer file for a 3d printer, which I do not have access to.
eBay hooked me up with (https://www.ebay.com/itm/1-6-scale-...e=STRK:MEBIDX:IT&_trksid=p2060353.m2749.l2649 ) a 1/6th head that is a very good likeness of Brando as Corleone.
The head came from Honk Kong in fairly a fairly rapid time, given the distance. At first I had some difficulty getting it to take paint, even primer. Then I found a posting recommending first applying a solution of wood glue diluted with a bit of dish detergent added. When that dried, all seemed to go as usual.
My skills do not go as far as Mujin Park's do. I was able to fashion a collar from an aluminum soft drink can and add an Apoxie bow tie, but no tuxedo jacket with rose in the button hole...
An offer that can's be refused...
The eyes,look Asian...
Ned: this one?
There's some interesting stuff at the foot of the page.
NeilW, That is the one. It is nearly finished. Perhaps a photo soon.
Far is not the right word...……."Look what they did to my boy"...…………...Ned...A bit wider cranium is needed.....
