    Here are some smudgy snaps of one of the figures I am currently working on. The reference came initially from PF, passed on to me by a friend. Bill Hopson was a US mail pilot in the 1920's.
    The figure is in 1/32 scale and sculpted in Magic Sculp and Duro. Still some work to do. All comments welcome.

    He looks awesome. I think you have captured the early aviator look well. Nice simple pose as well.

    Robert,
    Nicely done, the baggy flight suit came out well giving the right look to the extra bulk. Do you plan to post a painted version here, I'd like to see one please.

    Robert,
    very good, especially the folds in the suit.
    Any chance of a rear view? to see the figure 'in the round', so to speak.

    Very good for this scale.

    cheers

    Jamie, thank you for the comment, I will post a rear view, but it might have to wait until he is painted.
