    Hi all,

    I am trying to make some minor changes in this excellent Pegaso 75mm figure made by Yury Serebriakov. Obviously I cannot go beyong the excellent work of Yuri but I wish to represent a roman "optio" instead a legionary. The main change is to add a "crest" over the helmet and also two feather in both sides of the same helmet. This is my first time making "crests". I wait your comments...

    Very nicely done, Rafael. I like what you've done so far with the crest. What did you use to make this?

    Very good work!

    Rafa nice idea my friend and looks very good at the moment. My only critisism can be that the crest at the front should be leaning forward more. The shape should be a rotated C it looks as if it is a half C at the moment. Hope you understand what i mean!!!!!

    Thanks a lot my friends for your kind comments.
    Periklis: you say the true. Yes, I note I must add more crest mainly in the front part. But at this moment I decided to wait until the actual crest is dried.

    The way for getting the crest is very easy. I used a plastic wheel ans I cut this one for getting a C. In both sides I add a C made with photographic paper. Finally I add hair from a brush. This is the process:

    Hope this can be understable.
