I will have plenty of cliffs and rocks so...
Here is the prototype from Google images



Here is the "ready for paint" stage. I actually have a hole in each hand for thread/rope to hang him off the cliff with.

I wish my new digital camera would take better pics. I have kodak Easyshare Z1285 but apparently do not know how to use it?

Nice work John. Never give up!
BTW, if it is a new camera, then you probably have very high res images, try moving away from the figure about 3 feet and using the auto focus feature. You can then take the image into photoshop or gimp and crop it and size it. Thats what I do with my figure images and they seem to come out much sharper.

Taken from 3 feet away at the highest resolution setting and then cropped to size,,, not need for resizing on this particular image.

John,
I was refereing to better quality images. You may want to stand back a little is all I'm say. The scale don't matter for the image quality, its the distance from the image that seems to count on mine. I know you can get better lenses,,,, closeup lens that let you get up on top of the image and take a pic, but they are expensive and my solution works for me :)

Thanks for the compliment then :D He is 1:20.32 scale. 1:29 is a much harder scale, but I have been experimenting with it just to see if I'm up to the challenge. I model in 1:20.32 though so there isn't much incentive to finish anything I've started.
