    Hi guys, i wanna show you my first tryout with the sculping :lol: its a +o- 75mm RAF pilot runnig to his plane and screaming the luftwaffe coming!!! (or something like that =P ), so here is my work.

    I have the doubt about the arms, maybe to can sculping on the sides of the figure i will have to separate the arms from the body, What you think, please be honest i know its a little ugly.. :lol:


    Cheers
    Ed

    Hola Ed!

    Lógicamente apenas puedo criticar el cuerpo pues está en una fase muy inicial :lol: El rostro pinta muy bien porque está prácticamente terminado no?

    Yo estoy esperando a que me llegue la masilla y empezar a modelar, que miedo :(

    Ed,

    You're going to need to carve the mannequin down quite a bit to get it to the point that you can add clothing. It's going to be a good action pose, but you need to consult an anatomy book and make sure your proportions are right. For the head, again consult an anatomy book, but it looks like the eyes are too too high on the face. Keep hammerin' away and you'll get there.

    Ed,

    I agree with everything John said.
    I think it's best to build the muscle structure on the armature bit by bit rather than adding large amounts of putty which you then need to remove to get down to the correct size. Don't try to do it all in one sitting.
    By the look of it the waist is a bit low so the legs are too short.
    Anyway, keep at it.

    Hey Ed,

    I agree with the guys. It is going to be a nice action pose but you need to check on the measurements. I have a chart that I could mail to you on 1/35, 54mm and 120's. I am sorry I can't help on the other scales. Here is what the chart is like. Let me know if you would like a copy. Drop me an e-mail with your address.

    Joe

    One other thing don't give up everyone has to start somewhere. (y)

    Hey Ed!

    The legs are looking a lot better. The torso still needs to be carved down, unless your modeling your pilot after Arnold ;) Keep carving away buddy, you'll get there soon!

    Edson,
    United Empire Miniatures had some 75mm mannequins on sale at the Atlanta Show last February. I'm sure John Lea still has some. Get one and your proportion problems are solved. As for your mannequin ... perdoname amigo, pero todavia se ve demasiado grande. La distancia entre los hombros y la cintura esta muy largo. Ademas, el pecho esta demasiado amplio. Acuerdate que vas a aplicar masilla sobre la figura para esculpir el uniforme. Por lo tanto, quieres una figura que esta mas delgado que un cuerpo normal.

    Hi guys, I has been working just a little on this proyect so, I decided remove the arms and part of the shoulders like you goin to see in the next pic, now I got the posibility t get a better structure of motion , and better in the proportions (or that´s what I guess :lol: )

    So let me know what you think, maybe tomorrow Im gonna post som pics of the new torso.

    cheers
    Ed :lol:
