Showcase: Kristina Erickson by RAFM

Posted on October 20th, 2017 under , , , , . Posted by

Today I am showing off my miniature of Kristina Erickson of Abney Park by RAFM. For those that don’t know, Abney Park is a Steam Punk band that has been around for some time. Before sharing my mini, I want to state that I am not the best Miniature pain…

This is picture is of the pre-loved and slightly tatty Cheetah I got off eBay, which was sans butt-plate.  As luck would have it I could find no pictures on the web of the Cheetah taken from the rear.  Fortunately, I have friends who have complete Cheetahs to send me pictures of what the butt-plate should look like.

However, as luck would have it–or not, as luck only involved winning an eBay listing–I managed to buy a Whitecat.  This has the same V-motor butt-plate as the Cheetah, so I am now using this as a template to fabricate a replacement for my model.

I started by bending up a bit of wire to make a frame for the Milliput butt-plate.  Then I added the Milliput and moulded it into the rough shape I needed.  Still a bit of shaping and carving yet to do, but it has been far too nice to be sitting indoors making toy soldiers to finish the job.

And here’s the cleaned up Cheetah awaiting assembly.

   
So, more updates to come, but now it’s time to go off and shoot pointy sticks at round things: archery being lots more fun to do when the weather is nice.
