Q: ethnic heads & conversions?

    figure modeling is an ancillary facet of my automotive & railroad hobbies, but as with anything, i want to have at least plausible results.

    Q: is creating an acceptable ethnic figure as simple as changing heads and painting palette?

    my favor is mk35 figures, both for poses & scale/ proportion to each other. i've seen the line of Hornet heads. would i need to exchange hands & feet, too?

    apology for any unpolitically correct wording, but i'm doing the best i am able!

    Don't worry about it; the vast majority of us gave up trying to guess what the 'right' words or descriptions are (they change by the week) years ago!

    Hi there

    I don't do this scale but can't see a need to change hands etc

    Look forward to seeing your benchtime

    Good question, compare photos of American GIs in Vietnam with ARVN troops. ARVN are much smaller and usually very slightly built.

    interesting point. often trapped by my own ideas, the reasoning behind sticking with one manufacturer to populate a scene is consistancy, but perhaps it's inconsistency i'm needing!

    thanks for the perspective.
