MMM 200mm Obi Wan Nairobi ( Chris Craighead )


Recommended Posts

Started on this at the weekend, funnily enough a new mini drill kit i had ordered from amazon also arrived so put it into use, it does create rather a lot of resin dust, so a mask is required when cuting and sanding bit, however it's pretty amazing at doing what it does and for such a great price and its cordless (£22.99) you can get one from here - https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B08B61KR15/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o05_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

 

I have already done a review of the kit over here - https://www.planetfigure.com/threads/mmm-200mm-scale-sas-nairobi-dusitd2-terrorist-attack.312055/


Upper and lower torso joined and gap filled with some milliput. Sanded smooth. small resin gates ahve now also been removed;

Boots attached and pegged to a block of wood for painting, not sure about the position of his right foot though, may need to break it off somehow and re attach ( at the end);

Got all the flesh areas, face and hands, blocked in with base tone. Painted in the eyes, need a bit of work on the right eye, but please overall with the outcome. next to bring life to the face.

All the main colours blocked in, redone the balaclava , was to grey and not as brown as it should be. Sometimes the web can be a curse for reference images. different cameras give off slightly different hues, colours. Matching the rifle has been a nightmare and still not totally convinced on the colour, however it may come out okay once weathered a bit and had a matt varnish on it.

Needed to start on the Camouflage, so tried it out on the rucksack / backpack first, happy with the results, shadows added by inks and highlighted with pigments.

Camouflage painted onto the front vest and ballistic plate, side straps also painted, so will be able to glue the arms in place , once i get the pens for the waffle stripes on the rifle, oh and painted in the time on his Garmin watch. SHirt has had subtle shadows added;

After some debate on a couple of SAS facebook pages, it seems i had totally the wrong colour for his footwear, so following ref images they have been redone as a pair of La Sportiva, and thats how they are staying

Base needs edging and a plinth ordering to take it, along with a SAS Badge and a Gallantry Medal. Last post for a while as off on Holiday for a week on Saturday, down to gorgeous Carbis Bay.

Nice work. You really pay attention to details. To get on higher level You need to use more variety of shades - not only mid tones (shadows, lights) this will add more life. I know its not easy and very time consuming but i belive its worth trying.
