The head of the model held some issues. First of all, the boonie, though mostly correct, had to be identified as part of Spanish uniform. So it had to bear the Seal of the Army, the crowned Eagle with the Cross of St. James.
|Tried my best|
|Might find it useful in the desert, you never know|
I wasn't sure of what the hell was I going to do here. After some crazy ideas, I just decided to remove as much as I could with a cutter and sculpt a military neck warmer on it.
|The green stuff on the chin is due to a... ehrm... 'shaving accident'|
|Looks odd without arms|
|Pockets, pockets everywhere...|
So... I had all the pieces. How would they all fit in when put up altogether? Let's check:
The pieces (arms and weapon) are not glued, they need to be painted separately. As you can see, I also had to do some extra green stuff work on the boots and other parts to make the model more accurate according to the Spanish uniform.
So this was the scuplting. Now to the painting. I'll keep you posted!
