Fury figure

All aspects of scale figures, buying, painting, making.

Evening all,

I bought this figure a little while back and now got around to painting it and making a small stand to mount it on, the figure is a resin piece and has really nice crisp details, looks good keeping watch over the fleet :D still needs a coat of matt varnish to finish it off though

Cheers, Lee.

Amazingly realistic. I especially like the hair.

Thanks for the comments guy's :thumbup: half the battle is the great details of the figure, it makes the painting a lot less difficult :D

Cheers, Lee.

Thank you Roy :D I made his cigarette from a thin piece of styrene rod, I could use strands of filter floss for the smoke I suppose :think: :thumbup:

Cheers, Lee.

Roy, I have used filter floss in the past to simulate smoke, I made a few small dioramas of 1/12th minichamps motorcycles, this is one I made of Valentino Rossi performing a burnout :thumbup:

:O ...and.. 8O and..I'd only been jesting!!! :O That's amazing, Lee. Really astonishing :D I've sometimes seen great simulated explosions, with fire and smoke in static tank dioramas. I think I even posted a brilliant one (none of my doing :thumbdown: ) sometime ago of a '....I love the smell of napalm in the mornin'..'' setting. It was a couple of years back. I'll track it down later. Meantime, your cotton-smoke would look great as the start up exhaust from a Sherman or Tiger :thumbup: :thumbup: There's a Cromwell vid I posted a while ago, and it was burning a lot of oil (at nearly 80 years old, it can be forgiven for that.). Again, when 'resting' or taking a break as a Shelf Queen, your smoke would give an aged Cromwell model a massive hint of authenticity :thumbup:

That's a great idea for when the tanks are on the shelf Roy , I may give that a try when I finally get my Cromwell finished :thumbup:

Sorry Lee, you may not thank me for this, I know why your figure looks like he needs a good meal. Sorry.

Not to go too far off the tracks, here's the Diorama I once posted, Lee. If you had a spare Sideboard, it would be a good place to keep a 'resting' static tank:

Those effects look great Roy, it's amazing what can be achieved with a little imagination, a muzzle flash on a displayed tank could be simulated in much the same way I suppose, A small led could be placed within the floss to illuminate it to represent the burst of flame from the barrel :thumbup:

Cheers, Lee.
