Three’s a Charm. Piper Finished.

Here’s the line up so far with the piper finished this morning. Nothing has changed in the process other than the fact that I had to fabricate the mouth piece twice. Yes, twice! I couldn’t tell yah were the original went, but my first fabricated mouth piece made a distinct ”ping” sound as it flew from my tweezers right at about the time I was installing it, HA! The carpet monster refused to fess up with it, so I had to make another one. So goes life in the bunker.

The piper will set aside with the rest of the growing crew as I begin working the Flag Bearer.

If you see anything I may have missed, sing out, I’ll get after it right away. Thanks for watching.

Cheers, Ski.

Trying to get into the bunker has proven futile lately with outside work taking precedence. There is rain on the horizon this coming weekend, yehaaa! Funny, we spend all summer to get ready for winter and all winter wishing for summer, hmmmmmm,.......

I'll update as soon as possible, Gents :wink:

Steve, your piper looks superb, as do the other two accompanying figures! :shoutout: :shoutout: :shoutout: I hear ya about real life getting in the way of bench time. Some days or weeks there is just never enough free time available to do what we plan for at the bench. :hmm: But unless you have a time deadline such as an up coming contest, it’s all good. :wink:

Ya Buddy, you are correct.

I'm thinking if I spread out my outside work, I can at least get some bench time every day, but we'll see. This is actually the first year ever for bench time in the summer, so I am happy for that if nothing else. When the momentum is rolling, I'd like to keep it rolling, but we'll take what we can get. :wink:

Flag Bearer Finished

Finally, I can show some progress and close out the Flag Bearer. Bunker time has become a premium lately due to summer work, but we do what we can, right?

You’d think after painting four tartans by now that they would have been the toughest part, but working these long socks was no walk in the park. I had to redo the right sock twice while trying to keep the pattern straight as it wound around the leg. I sure do appreciate all the others to come, they’ll be a piece of cake, lol.

Using the methods and techniques mentioned before this figure moved along much quicker, minus the socks. He really doesn’t have a lot of detail to him, but the right side of the flag had to be tackled. That wasn’t as difficult as before either. There are a few areas I thought were a bit off, but you’d really have to look closely to find them. So, I’m calling this figure done.

Image Image

I aplauogize for the poor photos. Trying to capture the flag with the figure will be handled differently when the final pics are taken. For now, this figure is in the curio cabinet safely tucked away until the base and weathering are done.

Thanks for watching. Cheers, Ski.

Stunningly beautiful work! Wow!

Thanks, Guys! I feel like a heal posting but not really participating. Outside work has taken hold and it can be frustrating, as yall know. Must be why I love the winter time so much, HA! Plowing snow with a fine Maduro cigar and the tunes cranked is nothing but a joy.

Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow,........................... :giggles:
