Sorry, I couldn't come up with a better title for this post. Anyway, while I enjoy using the Hornet line of heads, I feel sometimes the need to flex my face sculpting muscles. I wanted somewhat of an extreme expression so I went with a sneer. This is the kind of sneer that a soldier might use while taking aim. I used Kneadatite/Duro for it's longer working time. I hope this expression is convincing to the viewer.
Here's my piece that will be donated to the Artist Preservation Group auction being held at the MFCA show this coming May. If you recall, this is mainly a Historex conversion. The only scratch-built items are the arms. The torso, legs(slight alteration) and head(Nemrod) are stock pieces. It was a quick build and a good workout with "whites". I really like how this one turned out and I hope it does well for the APG's efforts.
I live in the small town of Bath, Michigan with my wife and children.
I have been modeling figures for 25 plus years. Since I was a kid, I've always been fascinated by military uniforms of the past and soldier material culture. This then led me to express my interest through modeling figures from many time periods and scales.
