Holy frack!...just a few more centons!

I think I'm seeing light at the end of the tunnel with this model.....maybe.

The colonial warrior started out as a 1/35 scale Dragon BSG9 'Elite Urban Series Soldier' model kit. I assembled what I needed from the model then carved into it creating 'boots' and new folds in his tunic.

Using Milliput epoxy I sculpted a colonial style jacket adding hands from the Dragon model. The warrior's hair was also sculpted in Milliput. I tried to give a 'seventies' feel to his hairdo. I've given him a base coat ready for his detailed paint job.

I've started weathering the viper. Man, this really is an exact science. Luckily my copy of 'Sculpting the Galaxy' by Lorne Peterson has come in very handy for reference.

Even though the vipers in the show were heavily weathered, I don't want this craft to look too 'beat up'.
