Hi Folks, I've been fortunate to get my hands on a pre-production casting of this magnificent 1/6th scale bust by Naked Army of a Helicopter Crew from 9 Squadron, Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF), Vietnam. The bust is flawlessly sculpted and meticulously researched by Naked Army and cast in white poly resin and comes in four pieces (main body, right hand, radio mouth piece and left arm). I spent most of last weekend painting the base coats with Jo Sonja acrylics, and finished base coating last night which is where I decided to take some WIP pics. The uniform colour is known as Sage Green, which is halfway between Olive Green and Grey. The highlights will be a paler version of the base coat. The mesh flight vest worn over the chest armour and flight suit was the hardest to paint, as each individual square hole in the mesh needed to be painted (still not entire sure I've got them all). With the helmet visor down there's virtually no face painting required, which is a pity, but he does look cool. The visor will be glossed. The next step in the painting will be to do the mid range highlights and then the deepest shadows. As I'm painting this bust for the box art, I'm not likely to customise the bust in any way, however if you wanted to you could go to town on the helmet by adding squadron insignia or some graffiti.
