Progress on the Lancer
Only one week to go. Now the bad news (well maybe not!). I was worrying what to do with the sword and scabbard. They give you a strip of thin lead sheet to make the strap and then a collection of small cast metal bits to decorate it. I was rather worrying about this as it had a great chance of ruining the final item. Then last night I found that the scabbard had gone missing and I can't find it anywhere. Sad - but i can make him without it and have a better chance of completing it without super glue ruining it.
I have pretty much all the base colours on and some shading done on the trousers. I am not looking forward to the face but thats part of the deal.
I will keep at it.
