Here's a few pics of the 'Doc'. There was more detail to be done than anticipated. Looking at several film stills, one would think this would be an easy project. The holster contraption had it's own challenges, as well as the shirt. Painting was fairly straight forward. The pin stripes are always a bear to do. Some may wonder why I didn't paint his skin tone that pale complexion as depicted in the film. Well, I tried, but the overall look turned the entire piece into a black and white figure, no matter how subtle I added color to his face. To my eyes, it didn't look right. Alas, I went back to my usual Caucasian formula. I'm pretty happy with how he turned out. Now, I'm considering modeling his antagonist, Johnny Ringo. Stay tuned.
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.
