    Hi all, I’ve been playing around with this bust for a couple of days now , he’s been primed with Tamiya spray witch I regret as it seems to have swamped some detail , but I’m sure it will be fine :unsure: All critique welcome .

    Thanks for looking

    Nice one Sam

    Detail looks good to me so not sure which area's seem swamped?

    Anyway mate, looking forward to seeing it evolve in to another quality piece(y)

    Nice bust, but i really don't know why he has not the right hand on the gun.
    That will look so much better in my opinion.

    Sam, the left shoulder and arm could do with being tweaked here, as it is the raised left arm kinda looks tacked on rather than being an extension of the shoulder.

    I've been trying to find a WWII photo with roughly the same pose to illustrate but no luck I'm afraid, if you can't find one yourself if you have a jacket of roughly the right weight and cut check yourself in the mirror in this pose, see how the creasing goes. Take a photo if you can to work from, rather than trying to remember everything you see or hopping up and down repeatedly to check back in the mirror!

    BTW re. the primer, you should be able to strip it off successfully without damage to the bust if you want to try again.

    Hi all , thanks for all your comments .....
    Marc I have redone the right arm as you pointed out it would look better over the folding stock and i think your right .
    Ken this is a figure that I have converted from 200mm warrior figure .
    Einion thanks for all the advice it does help a lot and i will try to improve the figure .
