Hello fellas I haven't posted before but I thought I'd show my sculpt blog of some volksturm men training on the Panzerfaust.

Now if I could only understand how to create figures like yours ... Oh well, I live vicariously!

PS: Can you provide some basic information on how you construct these? What do you begin with, products, tools used, etc.?

No worries fellas. I have used magicsculp for this one. My sculpting follows typical methods- you make a little armature in 1/35th here using kit parts, some resin bits i have cast and you pose them as you want. Then you make them into 'pipe cleaner men' with putty and let that dry. I often put them in the oven to speed up this bit. Then, you use more putty over that to sculpt the surface to how you want it. Favourite tools for me are rubber tipped clay shapers, but you can use anything e.g. cocktail sticks. I dip the tools in water to stop the putty sticking. I don't use vaseline as some do.

Meanwhile a couple more shots.

Hey Dave,
Having seen this super model in the flesh so to speak at the club and enthusing about it with you, I would just like to say your photos do the model justice too.
Top work buddy

Next?

regards
Paul
