I had to "reach" a little to come up with a pose like this. I mean, It's a pose you don't see everyday. It looks kinda comfortable. The Hornet head has the boyish features I was looking for too and fits the subject perfectly.
The figure was sculpted with Aves and Duro. The drum was scratch-built.
One of several drummers modeled over the winter. The 54mm figure was sculpted with Aves and Duro. Head from Historex. Again, the drum was scratch-built. Painted with acrylics. Painting drummers lace in 54mm...NOT easy!
A feast for the eyes! I do believe this paint job is from the talented hands of Danilo Cartacci. I've re-posted the image because the previous one was too dark...And this piece deserves another post!
Thanks again Gary!
There was some wonderful, mind-blowing pieces being displayed in the fantasy category. The creativity, combined with skill, takes the figure hobby to another level. I feel the future of the hobby depends on the historical side continuing to embrace this genre.
Sorry for dark pics. I wish I had the time to set up and shoot better pictures, but with the tables so full of wonderful work, I was anxious to get to the next display.
I'm not sure who makes the French "corsair" figure but he's got a spot in my grey army.
A big thanks to Gary Dombrowski for taking the time to help brighten these pics.
I live in the small town of Bath, Michigan with my wife and children.
I have been modeling figures for 25 plus years. Since I was a kid, I've always been fascinated by military uniforms of the past and soldier material culture. This then led me to express my interest through modeling figures from many time periods and scales.
