This thread will be a sort of progress report on the three "new" Red Baron Conversions I am creating. One for me, one for Bubba Ho-Tep, and one for Hendybadger.

I'm sorry to anyone else who might want one, but my time is kinda limited - and the chances of me having the time for making any more is slim to none.

Hopefully this thread will have enough help and inspiration in it to help others.

Right I've decided on the Bodies I'm going to use -

Image

The Crooked Dice Miniatures "Guru" Body, I've just ordered three of them.

Looking at the original Red Baron model, you can see why I have chosen the Guru body (my apologies to Leon for pilfering his picture, but I need to show a comparison) - although my Red Baron will be right handed as opposed to the original miniature which was left handed.

Image

I (obviously) need to sculpt the left hand side of his tunic (with buttons argh) so both sides match, before sculpting the jacket and collar.

Here is a picture of the actual Red Baron in Uniform -

Image

And another picture of his leather flying jacket -

Image

While I am waiting for the bodies, I will start work on sculpting his right hand with Luger, then use instant mold to produce multiples for the three finished miniatures.

I will most likely use the same technique on the skeletal head.

More as I think of it/finish it.

I wouldn't call it desperate, but I'm in need of one as well. Only model I"m missing at this point. lol

I'll keep an eye out for an original, though, at this point.

Great work/find there DW! Keep sharing.

Started the work on the Luger hand early this morning, cant do much really - other than rough out the pistol (as I have to take Dad for a scan at the Hospital) over the wire 'twist' I'm using as the frame/ligature.

Pictures when it's ready to go into the instant mold LoL!

Well Bubba, what can I say - If you don't want one you don't HAVE to have one . . . . .

:lol:

The luger itself is all but done, I have some smoothing to do when the GS is fully cured - but it LOOKS like a Luger now.

Tomorrow I shall start roughing the hand.

The Bodies haven't turned up yet sadly, which in a way is a good thing as I am at the Hospital most of today - so I won't have any time to do anything!

Bad news about the Bodies for the Red Barons - Karl (the other guy who runs Crooked Dice) just posted this over at their Forum.

Quote:
M'northern colleague is currently laid up in bed in a very poorly state.

That means they'll be a delay in shipping stuff out until he is well enough to stop driving the porcelain bus.

Please send fruit baskets and flowers to the usual address.


FORTUNATELY I already have a couple of these bodies, as I was using them for other conversions (I've just done a Ming the Merciless) - so I can carry on while I am waiting for the others to arrive.

FORTUNATELY I have loads of spare bits from doing things from other people (and freebies from helping out).

If somebody else is after a Baron, they could have the ine you are doing for.

My wife just gave me a RED BARON!
