Fire Raptor crew project

-- A sculpture of a Fire Raptor crew member --

I needed crew members for my scratchbuilt Fire Raptor.
The initial sculpt was made for the gunners of the twin ball turrets. This was used to make a mold, and casts were made for the two gunners.

Another cast was made, and modified with a different arm position, a bit more lower body, and a modified helmet. This last cast will be the Fire Raptor pilot.

It is made to the usual heroic 35mm scale, ie. the bust is about 20mm tall.

The buildlog for the Fire Raptor can be found at my site: https://vigilantesculpting.blogspot.com/search/label/fireraptor

The pilot. This was modified from a cast of the original gunner. The arm position was changed, the fingers were redefined, the pelvis was added, and the helmet was modified.
