Completed Critique Rainy Mountain Charlie conversion

    Hello all, I'm sure many of you know this classic Poste Militaire bust. The kit was missing the hat and feather, braids, pipe and earrings, so it was converted out of necessity! I sculpted the top of the head and hair with A+B putty and also the otter fur braid wraps. The hole in the mouth where the pipe goes was also filled in and the lip built up slightly. This is my first conversion - hope you like it!

    p.s. I've noticed the stripes on the blanket look a bit uneven in the photos - I think that's partly the angle of the photos.. I may alter them slightly if needs be.

    Darn fine Edward!

    Gives a whole new authentic look to Charlie which I wouldn't have imagined was possible with a classic like this.

    I LIKE IT!!!

    Brilliant conversion. Very pleasing on the eyes and I would not change a thing about the blanket stripes.
