Oddball figure

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

Had a little change of pace over the last few day's and decided to start on this figure that I've had in the stash for the last couple of years ( yes, years :crazy: ) I don't think I'll ever get around to doing everything :/ still a bit more work to do on it yet but I think it's turning out ok so far, I'll update with some more pics when finished :thumbup:

Cheers, Lee. ImageImageImage

Thank you painless, a compliment sir :D I had the figure with a Sherman that I bought some years ago but then I changed the head for one that a member on here was selling, if I remember rightly he made a couple of different heads sculpts including war daddy :thumbup:

He's standing lopsided in the third picture, is that why he's called oddball :think:

Looks good Lee :thumbup:

So, putting his head on another body, technically makes oddball a body snatcher. . . .

Beautiful, baby. No negative vibes.

Very smart Lee - he’ll look good on it next to any of your Sherman’s.

Thank you Rob, I started modeling in 1/35 scale but the ol peepers aren't what they used to be B| 1/16 suits me much better now especially when painting figures :thumbup:
