    Morning folks

    Bit of an update

    Verbal...uniform all finished ...now wrapped in cling film.........

    WHY ???....... I hear you ask .....

    Well as you know I want to show the scrimshaw so the powder horn needs to be away from the body due to movement of fgure so .....

    I wrapped in cling film

    Mixed up some MS putty and waited till it had gone virtually off ( working on another piece for a future project...tease eh!!)

    Rolled out suitable straps ( sorry Geoff the ones you sent were too thin..now in my spares box! )

    Attached Blu tac to this roughly where the horn was wanted

    Then pushed horn onto blu tac ....and positioned straps where they go ...

    Once totally hard I will match the straps onto the horn fully then let that go off ....

    And in theory this will fit in place once horn is painted ....

    Feeling rather smarmy at the moment ..a brain wave in action !! ..LOL

    I will do the cling film way when sorting out the musket strap later

    To top it SWMBO wants to go shopping ! ...why do we need food when we have sculpting putty !!!

    ....Oh happy days

    Hi Guys

    Coupke of pictures before I sort out FOTM !!!

    Now have the musket and powder horn straps all hardened in correct position using the cling film method! .... to "in theory" and with minimum of fuss/ trimming ..hopefully ..fit into place nicely , the last thing I will do is to put the sling ends on the musket with MS .

    I have test fitted again and yes they drop in place well ..hopefully I won't drop them before final fitting!

    Also added some what will be wooden toggles , a loop on a bone button on the haversack flap

    Thanks for looking in
