    Just finished this nice bust from Young Miniatures. Had loads of problems with the eyes. One of them had a hole and the shape of both eyes was really rough. I really had to struggle to get them to a decent shape and was half tempted to send it back to the supplier at one time. It seems this was caused during separation from the mold but I expected better quality control from Young to be honest.

    Oh well, hope you like it and any criticism as always is welcome :D.

    Great work.
    What i really want is a new picture with another background for instance white. The green color is helping down the colour of the cuiras.
    Maybe you can do it without flashlight or less bulblight.

    As Marc says it's hard to tell in these photos, but it looks a fair job.

    Hello Giorgio,

    The eyes are very strange indeed, but in overall you have a great job:)
    It is not usual the Young busts present these defects, but anyway you should have asked for other.

    Thanks for your comments guys. I am still in the process of learning how to take decent close-up photos and I didn't have time yet to splash out on a good lighting system although I have a great Nikon Camera so please bear with me for a while :(

    NB. I don't use flash and I only have 2 light sources which are a day and night lamp close to each other, no decent background too :eek:
    Being a self taught person I guess it will take me some time to get a hang of photography.

    Regards to all,

    Hi Giorgio,

    In future if you have any reason not to be satisfied with the product; send it back. I know Young Miniatures take customer service and quality control very seriously and they would replace it for a new one,no questions asked.

    Nonetheless,you've done a very good job on this bust.
