I managed to finish one more project for the Chicago Show. This project is more or less a Historex conversion. The torso, head and hat, sword and sabretache are from Historex. The legs are as well, but they are from pieces designed for a soldier with leggings. I just added putty to the lower half to make into trousers. I changed the pose as well by spreading the legs and arching the upper torso to give a more animated casual pose.
Here's another project I finished before the Chicago show. It's based on a study done by artist Keith Rocco. The neat thing is the figure was commissioned by a collector who owns the original painting.
Here's one of my latest pieces. Just in time for the Chicago Show next weekend. I have been using a lot of spare parts in my recent projects, mostly parts from Historex and Airfix. This fella has a Historex torso and cap. The head is from Airfix, namely the George Washington kit. It's strange that the heads in these Airfix kits are the best part of the model. The horses aren't bad either.
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.
