George Armstrong Custer ( post Civil War Era )

Here's another 1/10th scale bust I scratch-built /sculpted using Magic-Sculpt and Duro/Greenstuff.
I used brass tacks as the buttons and plastic rod as the cords. The epaulettes (not very clearly shown in the picture below) were made using brass wire and Duro/Greenstuff.
It was made in five separate pieces as a kit for ease of casting :- Body, Helmet, Horse hair attachment and the 2 Epaulettes.
Looking at the detail on the helmet now, not sure I could do that again with my eye sight.

This was the finished product in resin.

I decided to adapt one so I added hair and placed his Helmet to the side as if he was holding it.
This is yet another figure I've still never gotten around to painting, mainly as I prefer sculpting as opposed to painting them and think they look better displayed as they are.

The helmet is a work of art .

R. Brit, you also did an excellent job of capturing Custer's face.
I've noticed that in your figures of known personalities, you are able to reproduce their facial features extremely well. Not all who do sculpture's can do that. It's a very remarkable ability you have.

Many thanks , glad you like him.

Very nice @Bigred! in case anyone wants to check the accuracy of the jerrycan (here apparently being used for WATER as indicated by the white cross painted on it) here's mine:

Unfortunately it was repainted after the war.

WWII Russian Female Tank Commander.

As a suggestion to sculpt the first in a series of female heroines I was sent this picture of Aleksandra Samusenko, a WW2 female Tank Commander who fought at the battle of Kursk in 1943.
She was killed in the last days of the war in the final battle for Berlin.

I decided to make her a 1/10th scale Bust using Super-Sculpey clay, Magic-sculpt and Duro.
The following pics show the work in progress from start to finish.
