So who does the face remind you of?

Now that is quick growing hair - wonder if any club members would like the formula for that.

Spear head and butt-spike removed from plastic rod and this replaced with brass bar.  Last photo is the start of the leather thong used to give extra grip on the rod.

Top of the helmet crest looks a bit on the flat side so messed (that's more technical words for Zak ) it up a bit with a hot needle.

Will anybody notice, will anybody care - the top section has had the pteruges cut and sanded so they are in 5 separate sections, the bottom one is still in one solid bit of plastic.

Hi Msea,

Looking really good.

Cutting and sanding the pteruges is a bit like an aircraft modeller putting a detailed interior into an aircraft, then close it all up never to be seen again.

But, YOU know its in there, same with these, only those who read this thread will probably know or can see what you have done, but YOU know you did it, and hopefully gain satisfaction from making it a more realistic model.

Very nice, look forward to the finished article.

Cheers,
Bigkev
