    Hi Everyone :lol: ! My next scratch-built figure is a 54mm Austro-Hungarian Tyrolean Standschutze. I got the idea from the Osprey Man-At-Arms book on the Austro-Hungarian forces of WW 1. Let me know what you guys think of it,won't you ? Thanks and cheers !

    Kenneth, A markedly better on this latest one. Your anatomy looks pretty good, and the clothing is not too puffy.

    A couple of things to work on next time; Thinner putty for things like pocket flaps, and check the direction of folds, Cleaning up the edges of the clothing would help too. The Hogarth book on wrinkles and drapery is a terrific reference for this.

    Hey Kenneth,

    I agree that this is better then before.

    How do you apply the putty on the figure? If you are not doing it this way I would suggest you try it. Apply the putty with like a tooth pick or something, making sure it is evenly covered and not too thick. Then take a wet finger and smooth it out until it is smooth as a babys butt. If the areas are too small, use a wet brush with soft bristles, and once the work area is neat, clean and smooth start working in the folds.

    I would suggest taking a kit 54mm figure (or pictures and really study them) , and really study the folds, you will find the folds to be more sharp and not so rounded off. To do this use an X-Acto knife or something similar, push the putty with the edge so the folds are sharper and more defined then you can smooth it out with a wet brush. I think that would help you tremendously.

    Keep working on it, you are going in the right direction.
