    I will be posting a daily set of photos of a Prussian Jager I began last night. The first set of photographs show the initial work on the sculpture. The shako I have used is one of my sculptures cast in resin.

    I am also posting this process on Lilliput, for our friends in Spain...

    These first two photos show the figure being anumated. I am using simple paper clips for the joints, and resin torso, pelvis and shoes. A & B putty is used for filling.

    Photo 4: I have added the arms using copper wire. Copper is better for arms, because it is easier to articulate the wrists (very important for soldiers grasping a rifle). Hands are Hornet parts with fingers removed.

    Dear Bill,

    Thanks for your SBS. I have a question. Will you be separating the arms from the torso when you start sculpting the uniform? Sorry for jumping the gun.

    regards :)

    Trousers added (one leg at a time), then the waffenfrock body... The pack is one of my resin cast parts, and the rifle is Shenandoah Springfield sanded down - soon to be reworked as a Dreyse.

    This represents two more sculpting sessions. Adding the basic waffenfrock sleeves, and then adding the belts, shoulder straps and cuff flaps from rolled-out Duro.

    In this session, I added the rolled out A&B/Duro waffenfrock skirts. I used some straight A & B to prop up the skirts. Also added were the cartridge boxes.

    And now some detailing: haversack added (moving with the figure), buttons, waistbelt buckle. I don't have too much left to do (facial hair, rework), chinstrap, boot pulls, bayonet/frog, canteen, Dreyse Needle rifle conversion and sling.
