WIP US Marine 1776


Recommended Posts

Here are a few WIP of a Marine I'm working on. The figure is 1/16th and made entirely out of sprue. I wish my photography skills where better. They look better finishedDSC00284.jpg.e891e74ad91bf7a06640a60c1f477db6.jpgDSC00277.jpg.c73ccce744958cd1f0e09188f0fec019.jpgDSC00284.jpg.e891e74ad91bf7a06640a60c1f477db6.jpg1/16th US soldier

Am I to understand that the 1776 Marine has been sculpted/carved/molded/scratchbuilt from sprue by yourself? And what of the WWII Marine pic posted also? They're both implressive looking as is.

Thanks Gil: yes sir both figures are made from sprue. The basics are:  take a small portion of sprue on the end of a wood burner and build up the plastic. For repetitive piece guns, canteen, ect, I'll make a master out of sprue, then make silicone mold and heat plastic with a toaster oven,then push the soften plastic to fill the mold, (Kind of a poor man's injection molding). The WW2 figure was added to show they do look better.
