Last week I worked on this little guy called Tommie, a frolicsome teenager with a ball waving to his friends or perhaps a train passing by.

Although he is a bit smaller than the rest of my home-made folks (one head shorter) he did turn out a bit bigger as I wanted altogether. He's ment to be arround 1:22,5 but probably he's more 1:20 scale (as usual, my figures always turn out a bit bigger, perhaps I must try to build 1:29 scale to come to the right size Rolling Eyes )
Faces and hands are still hard for me to do and those parts turned out just not the way I had hoped for, but not bad either. Perhaps using Preisser parts will work for me as well.

But than again, it's just fun to do and my figures are getting better each time, so I'm actually very happy with it.
And I'm pleased with his cap, made from a small piece of a plastic coffeemilk cup!

For who is interested, there are more "step-by-step pictures" in this picture album.

The gray is primer. The green on his feet is the Milliput color (I had him taped down during spraying).
Now on to some painting!

Some excellent detail Paul even down to the shape and form of the trainers.

Looks a bit like one of the oiks in year seconde that I teach (...well try to).

Thanks Carl!

I have painted him now. The clothes are a bit too glossy and need a layer of dull coat, but the pictures give a good idea how he has turned out.

I'm thinking of using some sort of wire for fingers the next time to prevent hands are looking like baseball gloves....
