    The Lost Battalion will be releasing a new figure at Atlanta sculpted by our own
    John Long. The box art will be done over the next week and another photo will show you the painted figure. I recieved the first casting today and will have to say "The Bar is Raised" as to the detail of the figure and the exceptional quality of the casting.

    Stockbridge Mohican
    120mm resin
    sculpted by John Long



    The kit comes with 2 right arms and can be done in either of the options.


    A kit review will be done later in the week and posted.

    Congratulations John..........a beautifully done Mohican.

    ** this is the Master that John sculpted and the gun will be cast in resin in the kit.

    Great figure! I usually do WW2, but I might have to get that. Just saw the Michael Roberts "Moment in Time" and it got me interested in the French and Indian War.

    That second pose, tho, makes me thinking he's saying, "Crimney, my scalp!"

    Thanks guys. This figure was a real adventure for me. I tend to gravitate toward dynamic poses rather than straight up and down ones and that produced some challenges in master design. I think it ended up as a pretty good product. I personally feel it's the best face I've ever sculpted. I hope everyone who gets one enjoys it.

    Very good work there, John! I'm curious: what is that orange material in the sculpture? Is that sculpey? If so, how does it interact with the other putties?

  7. John Long Active Member

    Testor's putty thinned with Testors cement. It's a trick I tried with mixed results. It's supposed to smooth the flaws and scratches in the putty. I used it on all of the flesh areas. The head is a resin copy of an original I did earlier, so I had to graft it onto the neck and fare it in. The Testor's cocktail didn't go on as nicely as I hoped and I had to sand it down some. That's why the orange coat seems so spotty.

    I am increasingly interested in this period, so this one goes on the list.

    Very nice sculpting, John. I think this is your first commercial release, so we look forward to many more. Just spend less time on the Internet and more time with putty in hand!

    "I think this is your first commercial release"

    Actually Steven this is John's third master he's done for me....I have two others on my website. John's work is outstanding and I will have many more jobs for him in the future!! In fact...I have a few ideas brewing in my head right now that I want to go over with him.....

    Check out John's other figures on my site at www.tlbminiatures.com
    Look for kits TLB 005 and TLB 015, one is a WWII Paratrooper and the other is a Roger's Ranger that would go very nicely with the Mohican he just did...

    And John....if you're going to be in Atlanta be sure to stop by my table...we can go over those ideas I had.

    Thanks for all the compliments guys.

    Darla, I'll be there and I'll look you up. See you then.
