    And now for something completly different.....a little pirate vignette.
    Just finished Keith and ready to add a lot more like some chests, candles, bottles and two more 9th Gate rocklegends.....Lemmy and Steven Tyler. Even ordered some lutes and mandolins ( from my 3D printer pall Luc Benheim ) to complete the scene so heeeeeeeeeeeeeere's Keith for starters !:woot:
    By the way I recently bought almost the complete Scale 75 paint range and I must say......very,very good paint ! ( ps...smartphone picture so not the best of quality )

    Nicely done. Did you have fit issues with him sitting in the chair, or is that just me?

    Nope, I had the same problems..first problem...I assembled the complete chair only to find out you couldn't get the figure on a completed chair. Second problem....a lot of resin had to be removed to make the figure sit òn the chair (and not a few mm above it) and to get the armrests fit when the figure is glued to the chair.....so, very nice and sharp casted figure but pity they didn't test it òn an assembled chair. But in the end all problems were solved.

    Thanks guys. Question.....( and this might seem odd but ) I need a 75mm ( 1/32? ) WW2 German Helmet for this little scene.
    Where can I get one of who has one ? ( And who can guess why I need one.......:) )
    By the way here's Lemmy and Steven ( 9th gate picture is not doing justice to Steven, sculpt is 100% look-a-like )

    would like to see 54mm as this is the scale for large dioramas

    Progress....... here's just some smartphone pictures. Lemmy 99% done, Stgevel 90% done....( working on the monkey ).
    Steven is, by far, one of the best, sharpest casted, figures I painted. The detail is fantastic and, since the casting is so sharp, fun to paint !!
    I made a "Jack Daniels" decal on Lemmy's bottle and added an Iron Cross ;)
    When all three rockers are done we can finish the scene.
    Never seen Keith perform but seen Lemmy a few years ago and Steven will be on GP this year.

    Not ready yet so just another picture to show the setting. Working on the instruments but.......the concertposter is on the wall !
    Better pictures in the CF section when it's all done.

    There's just something about the combination of guitars and booze...
  12. HansDig A Fixture

    Yep, there is....and most certainly with these guys.....though one has left us some years ago.
