    You certainly shouldn't be , it's cracking research and modelling

    I wanted to say that I rarely get to sculpt something well the first time.I redo things I don't like, sometimes several times.That's why my progress is so slow

    It is also why your work is so good

    Hello everyone.
    I remade the chain mail on haidate. Yesterday I received a 3D-printed o-zutsu cannon and installed it on a samurai figurine

    Thank you for your comments.
    Yes, I would also like to know Felix's opinion.There is little information about the use of hand canone.I have seen information that Ishida Mitsunari had canone, Tokugawa troops shelled Kobayakawa positions so that they would launch an attack.The Japanese did not use carriage guns, and ship guns are not mentioned in the battle of Sekigahara.That's probably why they used hand canon.
    I wanted to make a print run in September, but I had three forms destroyed.Now I plan to make new forms along with the forms of this samurai.I will definitely inform everyone who was interested as soon as I make the figures

    You do it carefully with much documentation and attention to detail and that is why so many people like it so much!

    I finished making the samurai. I didn't install the ring for attaching the sashimono. The figure has darkened from many heat treatments, so not all the details are clearly visible. I hope that after casting the parts will be clearly visible
