Here's my latest headsculpt just arrived today and ready for my latest project Twisted Evil its a resin cast of Sargent Elias K Grodin who was played by Willem Defoe in the Movie Platoon, this is one of my all time favorite war movies and Ive been after the figures for a long time but they are usually very expensive so I thought I would make my own up pirat

Latest headsculpt project Sgt Elias K Grodin (Platoon) Hawkeye%20Keyring%20008_zpsgz2qoe09

This will be a mammoth task to paint up, plus with it being resin it doesn't have a neck post hole but it looks great doesn't it Smile Ive just ordered another version of this head from USA that doesn't need as much work and is a Sideshow head with the neck-post hole so keep watching this space and see how James and I progress with our mission

Fantastic Iain! what a great project to get stuck into! Brownboots would be a good guy to contact for tips and help (if you need any, that is) as he is extremely good at this type of work. In fact, he repainted my Tommy Gunn sculpt. I shall look forward to seeing this project progress cheers cheers cheers
