    Hi guys,

    Some initial pics of my latest 120mm figure. A Japanese Special Naval Landing Force flag bearer, in my usual Milliput over a wire armature. Head will be used as a dolly for a new face, etc. Flag done in Milliput over a foil core with wire pole. Puttees in masking tape, trousers done and hands in Milliput over fuse wire, so far.

    Thanks for looking,

    Steve(y)

    Hi Steve

    Great to see the putty being pushed and a interesting subject as well

    There's a good Osprey book on these forces with a picture of a group coming ashore one carrying a flag ...sure you've probably seen the book

    Look forward to more

    Happy sculpting

    Stay safe

    Thanks Kev - the design is applied with a tool onto rolled Milliput - just a steady hand.....(y)

    Hi Steve!

    Fantastic work until now, one of my favourite subjects and scale because there aren't in the market many figures about this army and period of the history.
    Will be for commercial purpose? I hope so.

    Cheers

    Hi Francisco - thanks for your kind words. I would like it to become commercial, I am sculpting it in sections with that in mind. We shall have to hope that one of the manufacturers sees it!(y)

    Great work Steve, I’d like to see it released as a commercial piece too because it’s a unique subject.
