How'd you do the shoe laces?



I very carefully drilled tiny holes in the shoes for the laces. The laces were made from copper wire taken from a cut open extension cord. I then proceeded to ruin the tiny holes with super glue blobs when I attached the wire.
My continuing love/hate relationship with superglue.

Super glue is crazy stuff sometimes. Out of the same bottle, you'll get a bond unbelievably strong and fast and again out of the same bottle, it won't stick or dry.

You are aware that it has a "shelf life" and that exposure to heat reduces that considerable. Some folks, if allowed, put it in the fridge in an effort to extend it's active life. I'd recommend only buying small quantities to cover what you need at the time.

Yes,and it tends to do the latter when you are trying to glue that teeny part that is impossible to hold in place for long.

Great job Jerry, you have really captured the youthful look on the standing fig, and the pain of his wounded comrade. Please keep them coming. Best regards........Dale

The capture of the pain on his pain while his mate stoically carries him to safety is great.

One of those very rare models which manages to capture and convey the emotion of the scene it is depicting. For me the standout detail is the simple hand contact between your two figures: don't worry fella you're going to make it home.
