German Sniper 90mm

Postby Spud » Mon Dec 09, 2013 12:56 am

Well this will be my Christmas Project. panzer Iv was too quick :D

Ive been after this chap for a long time but the price was a killer. But Steve at SKminiatures looked after me in Telford

This needs a lot of work to get it right if you look at his legs you will see a big gap under one of them. the rifle but isn't sitting into position like it should and ill need to fill some seams.

I hate White metal Figs :( resin is far easier to work with,

With some luck all this will be fixed this week and ill have Primer on him. Ill need to have a chat with Leo about a camo Scheme on him and hopefully we will come up with something good

P .A lovely jubbly ! no rushing this now for any deadlines , steady as she goes ,
As i said you can take my SS autumn parka for ref , but have plenty of book ref for all the other camo colours , still think the autumn colour would blend nice with the brickwork?

Used some of that magic sculp stuff that we got , great to work with so should help with the filling and fixing of that dude .
I think that dolly is going to create more colour trouble than antin else ;)

Defo not rushing this one. I'll work on fixing the seams on his lower half them prime the lot and let it sit a while to cure up hard.

That's a work of art already! Superb casting and detailing. Definitely take your time with this one as it'll be worth it in the end. The attention to detail on this one will really be important. The doll alone will be a task in itself.

Looking forward to seeing this one come to life.

the Tamiya one is for White metal so it should be ok.

Leo i was thinking it needs to be drilled out but it could be risky if the drill goes in slightly off, so yer not mad :D

What's wrong with the helmet Spud? It is the ripple around the rim?
