TOPIC: "Can we keep him, Sarge?"

"Can we keep him, Sarge?" 26 Oct 2019 15:06 #1

It's been a while since I've been able to do any modeling. I finally got to do some this morning and what I am going to work on now is a vignette titled, "Can we keep him, Sarge?" which should be relatively easy to complete. It is going to consist of three converted Bravo 6 figures, they won't be wearing gear, and the base is going to be small so that should make for a reasonably quick project. The story is that a Sergeant is checking on two of his Soldiers who are relaxing and are also playing with a puppy. One is asking the Sergeant if they can keep it. The figure on the left will be built pretty much stock except for a new head from Armor35 that I will put some hair on with putty. The figure in the center is from the yet-to-be released Bravo 6 "Puppy" figure set and is of a Soldier holding a puppy. It will be built stock except for the head. The standing figure also receives a head from Armor35 and some putty work will be done to fill in the area where the belt had been and different arms will be used. The base will consist of a wedgie of sandbags where the back seat of the M151 is sitting behind the two sitting figures. There will also be a small dog (possibly the puppy's mother) and a cat in the vignette.









I think it makes for a nice compact, light-hearted vignette.

Well, back to work on it.

Take care and have a great weekend.

I dream of a world where a chicken can cross the road without having its motives questioned.

Thanks, Guys. It is good to be back modeling again.

Here are some photos I took the other day while the putty was still wet, so there are still some imperfections visible that I have since smoothed out. While the putty was wet, I made the impression from the M16 that will be slung on this guy's shoulder so it will fit more realistically when I add the rifle to the figure after painting. I still need to add a couple more things like the waist adjustment tabs to this guy's uniform.













Well, I got to run. Take care and have a great day.

Thanks for looking.
Cheers,
James

Well, I'm a cat person, so the cat gets the better billing. :)

Frank, your cat looks pretty relaxed. :)

This is how far I got this past weekend. One good thing about taking these pictures is I can see flaws that I can't see with my eyes and even the magnifying lamp, so I will be taking care of the rough spots tonight so I can wash and prime him tomorrow.

Originally I had the left hand holding a cigarette, but I found a hand holding a notepad and a right hand holding a pen, so those are the hands I am going to go with for this figure.



















Thanks for looking.

Cheers,
James

Yeah the camera doesn't lie James. It can be a good tool for doing a flaw check though as you stated. Looking good so far! (an yeah I saw the flaws as well) You will get 'em all I am sure.
