I think this is going to be a good look Ryan. No know knows what the sisters look like from the stomach down. For all we know they could be wearing those boots. I say go for it. It will make a nice change.
I can't wait to see yours Darth_Ennis. Group projects have a deadline of the end of year but if you keep us updated on progress it could be done anytime. Just look how long it took Darth_Ripley to show off her chest...buster.
Considering its only been Chewie, Darth_claus and myself posting today, I think it has affected forum posting only. I personally have three more figures to finish by the end of the year. I hope I can make it.
Wow! Now I know why it took you over three hours to do the hair. That's some impressive results. I think you will be able to get away with just painting the neck collar. I had to cover up some detail while you don't need to do that. The collar piece should look like part of the body glove anyway.
That thread works well Chewie. It's not too thick. It does take forever to get the hair correct. I've found it helps to have just taken night time cold medicine before adding the hair. That is what I did with the blue one. I think it came out better than the green one when I wasn't dozy.
As for the thread, I just randomly picked out some black thread that was in my wife's sewing cabinet. Are you going to paint on the neck piece or sculpt it? It's pretty much just a flat piece of sculpty then cut to shape on the figure with a exacto knife. How did you do the hair? Did you just cut pieces of thread and glue them on individually?
I've finished putting the hair on my sisters. The way I did this was to wrap some thread around my two of my fingers about ten times. Then I would brush on some krazy glue on the head and press the wrapped thread on to a small section of the head. I repeated this three times to cover the head. Then I cut the loops on each side and trimmed the hair so it didn't look messy. Finally, I brushed on some krazy glue to the top of the head and started wrapping the top of the head with the thread. I think they came out pretty well.
Another great custom Fritzkrieg. Your starting to turn these things out as fast as Chewie does. My question is why do all smugglers dress the same? Is there some regulation in the smuggler's guild that everyone has to wear a vest? I see this figure as being a great base for a high quality han solo custom. Just change the shirt color and add a solo head and you have it.
Yah, they are coming out better than I thought. I should have made that neck piece a little shorter. Let's get on the ball guys and see some work in progress pictures. We only have until the end of the year.
