    Hi All,

    It is time for me to jump with both feet into the German leg build report.

    the total number of parts for the legs was 16, which was the same for the arms and torso.

    as I was "growing" the legs, I was stuffing the parts with toilet paper, both of the legs now have some heft to them, it will be a heavy figurine when done.

    I might just have to weigh it

    On to the photographic part of the display
    The Right Leg

    The Left Leg


    And the completed legs and waist


    On to the American legs

    Wow the German is going together quite well. I like how the lines fit together.

    PS. Sheryl Crow is not only an idiot but she ruined a great Guns and Roses song and dumped Lance Armstrong when he needed her the most.
  8. Both figures are coming along great Rick! I wonder if they plan on doing any others? These are generic soldiers, but what I'd really like to see would be portrait figures. Can you visualize paper sculptures in this scale in the likeness of Von Richtofen, Patton, Rommel, Galland, etc etc. I think they'd be huge sellers.

    Hi All,

    I didn't take separate pictures of each of the American legs, but I will be offering up two pictures of the finished legs and waist of the American.



    Also, I came up with two names for the soldiers, you'll probably groan when you read it

    The names are:............

    Wait for it.............

    Siegfried and Roy

    (Yes I am here through the weekend, and don't forget to tip your admin)

    Nice, Rick! The face came out great! Nice full head of hair... Seems a shame to hide it under that helmet!

    Hey all,

    Seeing that the gallery is a bit harfed, and I still wanted to share with you the pictures of the build

    If you feel so inclined to view them, you can do so here

    I have finished the main figure, his weapon and kit is all that is remaining, the American is up next
