    Excuse my ignorance please, but I am guessing this is a Luftwaffe subject. It's Mike Good, that is really all I need to know.

    Wonderful sculpt as you would expect but just look at the detail of the straps, fantastic. Great expression on the face.

    Okay. I do not know if Young appreciates this model being shown before it is ready. But it really bothers me that the pics shown here do not show the model in its best light. So here are a few teaser pics of the original sculpt... :whistle:

    I still wish this model had not been "revealed" in this way. Sorry, but this is bad form. :(

    Whoops.... Well now that the cat's out the proverbial bag one can only hope that the steel helmet is optional and a fully rendered flying helmet lies beneath...

    Nope! :cool:

    The subject was chosen because the steel helmet was an unusual and visually interesting addition. They were worn by bomber crews sometimes and that is what the figure represents. If you want the flight helmet, most of the detail is already there on the lower part. But you will have to sculpt the top of the helmet yourself.

    An interesting point. I don't think my sculpting skills are anywhere near up to modifying this little masterpiece, though! We'll just have to wait out and see. It looks like the initial shots might have been lifted from Calvin Tan's Blog site and it looks like he is painting the box art model version on there...

    Thanks for the added pics Mike, looks fab.

    Was wondering if the strapping is made from putty, is the canvas texture pressed in somehow?

    I was wondering about the buckle release plate and whether the instructions were hand-painted on or did you engrave it on for the benefit of us more 'kak-handed' painters? o_O
