Eaglemoss Wolverine: Part 2

Hi everyone,

I have continued to work on this model in my spare time.  Unfortunately it is Christmas, and work is flowing up again, but I still got some time in.

After cleaning the model up as best I could I gave the model a grey primer.  This has two purposes.  First it acts as a primer, but more importantly all the defects I missed, pop out when the model is in a neutral colour of grey.

At this stage I continued to fix any problems with the model, and let me tell you - they were many!  In fact, in the end I gave up!  This was just a project to improve this model and as with the Conan model, I was not out to create a masterpiece.  So in the end I  decided to strick a compromise between quality and painting.

In the meantime, I thought the figure needed a bit of a story... and that means a cool base, something that accentuates his pose.  So I opted for a corner wall section that he could rest against.
After figuring out the size and height of the wall section, the next step was its construction.  I decided to build the whole thing from dense foam to keep it light.  For the brick work I will be using cut-up foam from the same material and plaster bricks I bought off Ebay several years ago.  All this would be glued together with wood glue.

Well that is all for this week.  Next week I will continue with the wall section, so you will probably see a post on that before you see any further painting of the model.  Hopefully, everything will be ready by Xmas.

So until next time, farewell and good health, from your devoted blogger Nightrunner!
