Ray sends greetings, and a look at some of his latest work.
He went to the Ontario Model Soldier Society show recently and had an entry that did quite well.
"Best of Show" is not too shabby at all. :)
In Rays words...
"Attached is a pic with my trophy from the Ontario Model Soldier Society show in September. The figure is a 54mm Historex conversion. I used the Historex parts to build a basic mannequin and from there used epoxy putty to add the detail. Its called "Winter Patrol" and it's a NWMP from 1876 on patrol in the Canadian Prairies. Its basically a Mountie with a red tunic but a buckskin jacket over it. Everything is done with putty and the arms were positioned with wire then built up with putty. I used an Ultracast head.
I built it for my friend Ian Pearson who collects Mountie stuff as a gift. I wasn't going to put it in the Competition but decided later to put it in. I'm glad I did :)
For more detailed pics here's a link to my gallery on Planet Figure.
Good job Ray!
Keep in touch.....
