    Hey there , Had this on the bench for a while trying to assemble the awful stool, and in the end gave up and made a new one out of solid silver ! I new being a Jeweler would eventually pay off . The stool in the kit is the normal soft metal ,which is probably the worst material to make it out of , prob why I have never seen this figure painted up on the web, except for the box art . Anyway does it look right ? I am going for the retro 50s look . Cheers Ne cold staw 1.jpg cold straw 2.jpg cold straw 3.jpg il.

    That looks awesome!
    Now that you've solved the stool, I'd like to see some colour on this figure.
    Great pin-up.

    I hope you will chain that down when you displayit at the shows :), it really looks the part & will compliment the figure when painted, Kudos to you.(y)

    Brilliant mate!

    That craftsmanship came in handy eh & can't help feel polishing up the little lady would be a nice option instead of paint

    Look forward to seeing if you decide on Hokey Pokey ;-)

    Stay safe

    The chairs in these kits are terrible. When I painted the one of the nude girl with a painting beside her I had to remake the chair from nails. I look forward to your progress.

    Being a jeweller comes in handy sometimes!!!!! I have used silver to remake quite a few things in the past. Nice work I must say

    The scene is greatly improved with the change, I think. Awaiting the progress!

    Nice work! That stool is straight out of a 1950s diner - heaps better than the original.
    Look forward to seeing her painted up!
