It would be great to get an insight into how you work your magic Paul.

Sounds like something I should check in on, can't seem to find a decent civilian 1/25 scale bulldozer {or any other operator/driver} figure:confused: so maybe I should start thinking about fabricating my own?


The only issue I may have would be the sculpting of the face, hands etc... I suppose I could give him sunglasses, hardhat and gloves, that could let me off the hook for a lot of detail that I have absolutely no experience with. Looking forward to what I might be able to learn from your thread................Cheers, Jim:smiling3:

What type of clay and tools would be best Paul ?


You've probably posted the answer already somewhere but I can't find it.

glad your in guys, Ian there are various types, milliput which is air hardening and sculpy putty which hardens in the oven, i use both types and it depends on how fast you work, to start with i recommend sculpy, ( get it from ebay ) as you can work it for as long as you need before hardening it, on one of the other master class blogs i put a list of clay and tools that will be useful, if you cant find it let me know and ill re do it
