Thanks for the WIP pic Phruby.  That always helps.  I went through 3 boxes last night of loose parts trying to find what I need.  No luck just yet, but hopefully I can find what I need this weekend, or I can look on ebay.

I added the black areas on their wrists and colars. I used black eletrical tape for their garders and belts. The buckel is of course sculpty.

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.

They look good Phruby, very nice.

I am sorry I'm behind on the ball on these.  I have been so busy at work lately and my commute time doubled recently - now I get home around 7:00pm, and I'm trying to get the Rykrof Enloe series updated and one of my local friends dropped off several figure parts as he wanted me to make him something for Christmas... 

I'll try and get everything done soon.

I think I got what I need for this now.  I'm pretty low on funds right now, and had to shell out $20.00 for the ANH Priness Leia Collection 2-pk with R2D2 tonight for this.  Ugh.  Hope I can get the customs to look ok.

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.

Great work Paul - these turned out really beautiful.  I like the hair a lot - what kind of thread did you use?  The kind I have is probably too thick but I'll try using it anyway.

Here's my first WIP for them.  I have a lot of work to do on the hair.  After that, I think I will be ok.

Ok, 3-1/2 hours and I finally am satisfied with the hair on one of them.

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?
