When I opened the box
and looked at it for the first time, I decided to alter a few
things to the basic sculpt. The arms seemed to be too
short for the body, so I added about 1/4" to the Biceps and
also another 1/4" to the forearm. I cut both arms in
to three sections, drilled them, inserted some coat hanger wire
and then filled the gaps with Milliput.
For some reason the artist (whoever it was?) decided to sculpt
the figure with his trousers loose at the waist. This
gave the impression that it's not only bears that take a dump in
the woods! I used a Dremel to cut away the belt and top of
the trousers, so that it was flush with the upper torso section.
Next I glued and pinned the two sections together and then used
some more Milliput to resculpt the belt and trousers.
The model was then painted in my usual manner, fixed to an old
woodland base from the JayDee kit of The Crow.
