    Dude! I'm in awe, that is absolutely unbelievable!!! You have a lot of talent and modeling skills, not to mention a great imagination. As a suggestion,for making figures you might want to give Sculpey a try, it's easy to work with, bakes in the oven at 260 -275 degrees, and is paintable (with water based paints). You would probably have a blast with it, seeing the figure you did, and one box can yeild a lot of small figures! And, it's non-toxic, too. It's what got me started in sculpture, many moons ago........

    Spielberg is not picking up the phone, I think I'll sell the rights to Bollywood. :mrgreen:

    I was actually looking for some figure to buy, but can't find anything decent in that size, so I decided to create one. It's not the best, I've used what I found at home, but it's plausible for this purpose, I only wanted to bring some life to scene and give some scale idea. I hope that my next try will be better. :yep:

    Very Cool! Fantastic model. I'd love to see a tutorial on how to weather like that. I love the worn edges on the metal.

    Some of these things seems just so untenable, but this looks like something that could work and not a pure work of fantasy. :)
