Mind you how did you get your miniature dog to walk up your thumb in one of the pics, that's clever. [wink]

It's a normal sized dog but I have a giant hand

I decided I would spend the weekend trying to get the pilots sorted out and painted, along with some others that I have in the stash

I got both of the pilots arms on, plenty of filling ahead

The gaps aren't just down to a bad fit, it's because these arms are supposed to go on the other figure from the Stuka kit

For the copilot, I separated the thumb from the hand a little bit with a scalpel

Looks like he's doing a "fonzie" heeay !

Both of these arms (which are originally for the pilot) are sculpted straight, as he was supposed to have both hands on the control stick in the Stuka, it would look a bit odd if the copilot in this had both hands out in front like that.

So I did a bit of surgery , and made a cut at the elbow pinned it with wire and repositioned it so it would rest on his leg (I mean his own leg not the pilots lol)

This is the reason I opened up his thumb

He can now hold a map, newspaper or a copy of Nude tractor mechanic monthly if he wants

I'm hoping it will just add a bit more life inside the cockpit, and also having these two in there means I can avoid having to add any details........ Bonus lol

I mixed up some milliput and filled the gaps on the Pilot, it's a little rough but I can sand it when it's dry to blend it a bit more if I need to

And also on the arm I choped in half, Hans has got Hands !

A bit of a diversion now, but it's my thread and I will divert it if I want lol !

I had mixed up way too much milliput and had this left
20150214_133348 by brundledonk, on Flickr

You may of seen me mention in some of my other threads that I plan in the future do build a Zombie Diorama, I like the idea as it opens the door to many possibilities, such as wrecked vehicles, civilian and military vehicles and figures, and of course zombies, and here's the thing, model suppliers are not exactly packed to the rafters with zombie figures, there are some available but the good ones while not costing a fortune are expensive enough that creating a "horde" is out of the question.
I realised when I decided that I wanted to do a diorama of this that I would need to figure something out. I managed to get a set of Masterbox figure a little while ago that contains a few zombies, and the figures are quite nice, but the head sculpts don't really scream zombie, they are just regular looking heads, and I want rotten walking dead style zee's.

So I thought I would use the leftover milliput to have a go at sculpting my own.

I'm still working on this side, I haven't worked out how to make an ear yet, but I've tried to sculpt the throat torn out and the jaw dislocated.

I can see this sculpting lark has a steep learning curve, so will need to practice hard to nail it, I am pleased that I have got the size more or less right for 1/35, but need to work out how to make the ears.

Anyway enough about the undead, the next update will be luftwaffe based again

Cheers

Looking fantastic Pete, loving the details in there mate. Ted posted a thread with a video in the diorama section a Japanese modeller doing a Lightning /Zero dio which was beautiful, if you watch it to the end then there are the trailers for similar videos, there is another Japanese guy building a tank but he also sculpts some crew figures from Tamiya epoxy man he is genius, really inspiring, well worth a watch.
Cannot wait to see more of this one Pete
Good luck
Gary
