(Completed) RAF Bomber Command, WW2

This will be my last bust for 2014.

A challenging yet rewarding bust to work on. Painting the textures on the various accessories was time consuming but the additional dimension it brought to the bust made it worthwhile :)

(WIP 3) RAF Bomber Command, WW2

Approaching the finish line for this bust. Some straps and buckles to paint and attach.

Overall I enjoyed bringing this bust to life. The different materials & fabrics gave me an opportunity to experiment and try different methods.

Just note the oxygen mask and the oxygen hose are cast as separate pieces and should be pinned together. The oxygen hose also needs to be bent into shape. Likewise the cable from the mouthpiece of the oxygen masks needs to be bent and connect to the intercom cables.

Getting back into the groove. Lots of interesting textures and fabrics to experiment on :)
