Nick,Kurt and Mike,
Thanks for weighing in fellas. I appreciate it a lot men!
Here is something for Patrick,who wanted a small "how-to" on figure mods.
First pic shows an innocent guy from the Dragon set of Normandy radiomen.
Second pic shows the effects of my dremel tool with rotary bit on the poor guy,along with some under cutting to start his transformation into a Luftwaffe troopy wearing the standard airforce jacket. He will be smoking a pipe and so has received a brilliant Hornet head reflecting that activity.
Third pic shows the first application of two part epoxy sculpt. He got his missing right sleeve end and the beginnings of his pipe,also the missing crotch of his pants,filled in the various gaps in his arms and wrist and made his left hand hanging from an open pocket. The flap will be added from lead foil later when dry and sanded.
When all this has dried it will be sanded,etc and then the hat and hair added and PRESTO,he is a changed man.
Patrick,hope this helps (or anyone else peeking in)
