Hi everyone,
I think i posted it previously in wrong forum, so I re-post here my work, excuse me please.
Here I leave this figure for the examination of yours master's eyes.
The figure has 47 mm from the feet up to the head, and it is realized with white milliput, except the shoes that are from the booth.
I have tried to give it texture of leather turned in the jacket, as well as skin of lamb in handles and lapels.
Also I have tried to put texture of wool in the jersey or sweter that is up to the throat.
Little plastic for the buttons and thread of copper for the cords they finish the set.
I hope that it likes to you and thank you very much for yours commentaries, they will be very well appreciated.

very well done.
47mm is about 1/35 scale, right?
What do you use for an armature, if any

Justin and KoSprueOne, thanks for your words.

The figure is for a vignete in 1/35 scale. In 1/35 mm is 1,65 m height. In 1/32 scale (54 mm) is 1,50 m., for what also it would be valid.

To realize the skeleton I use sections of plastic proceeding from other figures sharped and sanded or pipes of plastic refilled with epoxi.
Later, all of them one, in the zones that correspond to the joints (shoulder, elbow, hip, knee, ankle) I fit them with a copper or zinc wire of 0,8 mm thickness. When the skeleton has the form that I want, I add a few drops of ciano glue.

Regards.
