    On the Great Plains, Lakota Sioux Family, 1874 - 1/35 Master Box Plastic Kit

    This one took a little longer than normal for me. It's a great kit but I decided to take it a step further and added numerous leather belts/straps made from black electric tape, ropes and cords from various diameter wires and Historex buckles.

    I added earrings to the wife and replaced the husband's belt buckle with a Historex one. I also made some very minor sculpting additions using epoxy putty. Finally, I made a slightly larger base to artistically represent the wide open spaces on the Great Plains.

    Cheers,
    Ken

    Nice bit of work Ken - I've been looking at these MB figures with a view to doing something similar (minor improvements/changes)

    They certainly are excellent value and yours has painted up beautifully(y)

    Looking at your rendition Ken, you'd never think this was a plastic kit.
    Your various additions, topped with an excellent bit of painting has produced a little gem.
    Very well done.

    Cheers,

    Thanks Paul, Wolgang and Andrew.

    The plastic kits can be challenging, but they are fun to enhance. It's a great medium to work in a far as making changes. Also, if I really screw it up, there's a lot less financial pain.;)

    Cheers,

    Thanks Mike, Phil, Mobo and Mike!
    Painting Native Americans in a social setting was great and allowed for a lot of colorful choices. I really enjoyed it. :)

    The background on the pics gives it a extra touch of realism, could almost hear the wind blow on the wild Great Plains... Very nice indeed, great paintwork, great composition, amazing piece of work! (y)
