Morning/afternoon/evening;


Thought I'd better get my entry in while I was thinking about it.


Wee Willy goes in the self portrait category.  He was built using the Chris Walas technique, meaning Sculpy over an aluminum foil armature.  incidently, it takes a lot of baking for a figure this size.  And the Brian Fayles painting method.  I've includes an image of the prototype for comparision.  Willy's beard is better trimmed and his belly is smaller but, he's a fair likeness. 


Over on the GN15.info forum, Michael Mott showed a few pictures of his developing 30mm 1/10 scale models and that inspired me to build Willy in 1/10.














Willy is the first figure I've shown here, one of these days I'll get around to posting some of the 1/20th guys.

Thank you for the positive comments. I think I've demonstrated here that the self image I sometimes carry in my head doesn't quite match the image I carry on my aching feet.
Thanks again
