Barbed wire and more dinner guests getting flocked , eyeballs rolled from Milliput and the first pour of the water tonight as well.

I believe we are into critical mass.

Really imaginative and atmospheric. The groundwork is amazing as is your brushwork on his leather jerkin !

Thanks Bdick.

All it takes is a little push every now and then.

Dreaded this a little, so I pushed on it, the 5 piece cap strap. 2 pcs from a Verlinden p/e set , one strip of lead sheet, and two Grandt line .040" rivits for the buttons. Oh and 2 hours! :

Thanks giemme.

Lettering created in Corel, transferred to Signlab , .020" plastic card scored on my Ioline cutter , then snapped out as you would a vac kit.

Edges cleaned up then treated with liquid glue to smooth out.

Not sure of the final look , but a lotta treatments to go ... they look really good on the piece.

All the title copy placed and glued , thinned white glue capillaried into as many areas as possible. I will endeavor to tone down the chrome Grandt Line hardware , and differentiate the copy from the background with some subtle color changes and shading when the glue has set:

There are some straps to be made and very little else. The end is near...
