    Me again
    Continuing with this project, I've taken a shot at sculpting the long hair in motion. I used a 70/30 mix of Apoxie and greenstuff. In the pics it's hard to see some of the scribing of the hair, but it's there... honest :unsure:

    Snapped off the lefthand fingers as I worked on the hair... Redid them after the pics with the same mix as the hair. Worked out much better I think.

    Appreciate any feedback or help I can get from y'all :D

    Hair looks pretty good to me, it has really brought the figure to life.

    It's hard to decide how much detail to add to hair but I think this is just about the ideal amount for this scale. For ease of working and resistance to knocks I'd have probably used a mix heavier on the Kneadatite or even used it neat (but not mixed 1:1).

    Looks good dude!

    Einion brings up a good point about the amount of detail in hair at this scale. It looks right, although as suggested it may make your life easier using straight Kneadatite. Rather than cutting into the putty with an exacto blade, press into it with the sculpting tool, needle, or the like. This way you will avoid so much tearing of the putty and end up with as much definition as you'd like. Remember you can always add more detail with paint ;) .

    Thanx everyone for your kind support and great advice. Every stage of this project has been a learning experience, 1) from actually putting my hands on putty and seeing what it does/doesnt do and 2) from the comments and advice of fellow modellers.

    This has be a blast and I can begin to see the light at the end of the tunnel

    Ron, that is a beautiful beast:love: Once the strings are laid in, Im gonna add the cover at the middle pick up and a 60s style bridge cover. I do love the black Ricky but this one will be the blonde Lemmy used in the late 70s... with the Iron Cross and "born to lose" painted on it. How have i handled it so far?

    By your passion for the Ricky, Im guessing you are a fellow bass player

    I was a bass player in my first band about a century ago :D Joined a band 1984 playing keyboards and laying down bass lines " criminal I know but wee needed someone who could do a
    bit of both" fenders have always been my thing ,but that Rikenbaker does look a beast , all the best bands have rock solid drums and cracking base lines:)

    Only play pink floyd solos on my beloved 50th anniversary black Strat these days, with Humbucker crossover switch and rosewood fret board(y)

    Look forward to seeing the finnish

    Im sure that dog of Colin's knows it's an AXE:rolleyes:

    I too did the band thing in the 80s and early 90s... all originals but nothing so civilized as Floyd Im afraid:sneaky: more the hardcore metal thing.... we'd do Motorhead covers to warm up for the faster stuff. Ahh, angry youth:mad:
    Back then I played Samick and Yamaha 5 string basses and a B C RICH 4 string. I still have the 5s and a Traynor 4 plus a small collection of 6s... flying V, Explorer, 2 BC Rich's and an Ibanez. Just sold an SG baritone :(.
    I have a small recording "studio" at home for musical masterbation when the mood strikes ;)

    I learned bass listening to Jet Harris in the early sixties , I believe he was the first guy in the UK with an electric bass, everyone else was still playing double and all you could here was

    Checka dull thud
    till he came along and you could actually work out the notes :D first five string I heard was the Hollies base player and thought whats making that sound .
    checked out the B C Rich sounds a real beast .

    even if they dont get played so much anymore, they are trophies of a misspent youth... reminders of wilder times playing the Toronto club circuit when it was running hot.

    hard to type... mind wandering... eyes welling :cry:

    Hi Colin,
    Rock on mate, you've certainly captured the spirit of Lemmy in a live performance, coming along really nice.:cool: I hope when you base him up you add the inverted trade mark mic & stand (y). That "Ace Of Spades" track of yours must be getting some hammer.
    cheers
